Data management and processing in archaeology

Archaeology is a discipline that produces more and more data in many forms, whether from fieldwork or research. By its nature, archaeology works on incomplete and contriving data, but the development of digital tools now make it possible to consider applying our questions to larger quantities of variables and information, particularly through LOD.
The MOSAICdata Summer School aims to bring together PhD candidates and researchers to discuss the management of this data and the tools available to process it. Therefore, it will be a matter of developing existing techniques for collecting archaeological data, curating them, aligning them, and implementing them. Finally, it will also be an opportunity to discuss good practices when using digital data.

Program of MOSAICdata

International Research School

This summerschool will last six days during which several data management and processing methods, in different fields, will be illustrated and implemented using the Rstudio software.

Program

Tutorials

How to ... ?

As most of our participants are unfamiliar to R, we collected some helpfull tutorials. Prior starting to explore R, installing R is mandatory. Additionally, R Studio needs to be installed as we will work with R Studio during the course. R: The R Project for Statistical Computing R is a free software environment for statistical computing and graphics. It compiles and runs on a wide variety of UNIX platforms, Windows and MacOS.
