Readings for March 23rd: Digital Archaeology and Communities: Engagement Beyond

Hi all,

For the March 23rd class on digital archaeology and community engagement, Neal has suggested that we replace the McDavid 2004 article on the Internet and public relations with a more recent article:

Richardson, L. 2013 A Digital Public Archaeology? Papers from the Institute of Archaeology 23: 1-12. (Available at: http://www.pia-journal.co.uk/article/view/pia.431/549)

Also, I would like to add 2 more readings:

Beale N. 2012. How Community Archaeology can make use of Open Data to Further its Objectives. World Archaeology Vol. 44: 612-633.

Karl, R. et al. 2014 Picture This! Community-led Production of Alternative Views of the Heritage of Gwynedd. Journal of Community Archaeology and Heritage Vol 1: 23-36.

Both are available through Western Libraries online.  The Beale article is a review of ways in which open data have been and can be used in community archaeology and the issues with that.  The Karl et al. article is am interesting case study where the visitors to a site in Wales can upload their digital photos of the site to help build 3D models and track changes in the site over time.

Let me know if you have any questions about the readings and I am looking forward to our discussion in 2 weeks.
