    The Problem of Archaeological Data with Dr. Peter McKeague - Ep 122

    The Problem of Archaeological Data with Dr. Peter McKeague - Ep 122

    Every year archaeologists create a wealth of data through fieldwork and research that is essential to our understanding and interpretation of the past. Despite the geographic character of much of that record, we consistently fail to realise its potential. Site plans and detailed survey data are routinely locked into the pages of PDF reports. As a result plans fossilised in print cannot easily be reused alongside other datasets to improve our understanding of the past. There is often no consistency in how mapped data can be combined across projects to map the archaeological landscape. We need to wake up to opportunities digital transformation presents us as archaeologists in presenting our data to a wide audience. Dr. Peter McKeague joins us to talk about this problem.
