Internet Archaeology is pleased to announce the publication of Issue
24, a themed issue dedicated to:

"Dealing with Legacy Data" edited by Pim Allison


In the Mediterranean region particularly, but by no means not
exclusively, there exist large datasets from previous excavations,
published and unpublished, whose digitisation, spatial mapping and
re-analysis can greatly facilitate investigations of social behaviour
and changing environmental conditions. This volume presents a number
of projects that demonstrate the usefulness of digital environments
for analysing such non-digital data. These projects use these 'legacy
data' within true GIS, pseudo-GIS, or other digital environments to
answer specific questions concerning social behaviour and
particularly the social use of space.
