Dear Colleague,

For anyone who would have liked to discuss their manuscript with us at the conference, our editors are happy to arrange for a chat over email or virtually. Please contact Archaeology and Heritage Studies Editor Caryn Berg to set up a meeting.

What's New in Archaeology

Remembering Ghosts on the Margins of History
Edited by Sarah Surface-Evans, Amanda E. Garrison
and Kisha Supernant

Drawing on archaeological, historical, and ethnographic data,  Blurring Timescapes, Subverting Erasure  demonstrates the value of conceiving of ghosts not just as metaphors, but as mechanisms for making the past more concrete and allowing the negative specters of enduring historical legacies, such as colonialism and capitalism, to be exorcised.
NEW SERIES Digital Archaeology:
Documenting the Anthropocene
Raising the Dead with Agent Based Models, Archaeogaming, and Artificial Intelligence
Shawn Graham

The use of computation in archaeology is a kind of magic, a way of heightening the archaeological imagination. Agent-based modelling allows archaeologists to test the ‘just-so’ stories they tell about the past. It requires a formalization of the story so that it can be represented as a simulation; researchers are then able to explore the unintended consequences or emergent outcomes of stories about the past. Agent-based models are one end of a spectrum that, at the opposite side, ends with video games. This volume explores this spectrum in the context of Roman archaeology, addressing the strengths, weaknesses, and opportunities of a formalized approach to computation and archaeogaming.

Series Editor:
Andrew Reinhard

This series aims to answer the questions of what digital heritage looks like and how it can be understood archaeologically. Read more.
