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

"Dealing with Legacy Data" edited by Pim Allison

<http://intarch.ac.uk/journal/issue24/index.html>http://intarch.ac.uk/journal/issue24/index.html


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published and unpublished, whose digitisation, spatial mapping and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.
