The Art of Narrative in Your Workflow with Ruth Tringham

In this webinar we address the challenge of linking textual narrative to data/media throughout the workflows of observation, collection, documentation, analysis, and interpretation. We start from the premise that the importance of narrative/storytelling is not an epiphenomenon (afterlife) of the active project, but is an integral part of the whole process. We point to the different narrative formats and options, skills and tricks for the different parts of the workflow that can create the most productive, accessible, and enjoyable experience for your audiences.

Getting an Archaeology Article Published with Mitch Allen

Getting an article published is about more than simply doing the research, writing it up, and sending it off. There are strategies for presenting your work to the journal editor-- and ways to craft your message to them-- that greatly improve your chances of success, strategies that most academics don't know or don't follow. This workshop will serve to demystify what journal editors do, how they make their decisions, and how you can best approach them to maximize your chances of success. I pay special attention to the role of editors, editorial board members, and reviewers, and the importance of doing research on the publications and its gatekeepers before submitting for publication. Participants should bring information about a current research project from which we will create title, abstract, and key words for an article and identify a set of journals to which the article can be submitted.

Getting an Archaeology Book Published with Mitch Allen

Writing and publishing a book is a multi-year process that requires enormous amounts of work from you in writing, editing, and preparing material for production. Before starting on such a large endeavor, an understanding of the process is important to ensure your publication matches your vision of it. This workshop deals with the important preliminary steps of shopping for a publisher, writing a book proposal, and negotiating a book contract. Advice will be provided on how to get started writing, keep going, and finishing a draft. We will discuss editing your manuscript, the peer review process, and what a publisher wants you to prepare besides the text. The workshop will take you how to best achieve your goals through an overview of the editorial production, printing, and marketing phases of producing a book. Participants should bring a current book idea from which we will develop parts of a publications proposal.

Approaches to Data Management, Curation, and Preservation for Digital Archaeology using tDAR with Leigh Anne Ellison and Adam Brin

Archaeologists have incorporated digital technologies in their work for decades. In recent years, however, the pace at which digital data are generated has become overwhelming and the variety of digital data and issues around using and preserving these data have increased considerably. In this workshop you will learn how to approach the issues surrounding digital curation and digital preservation from planning for data collection and writing your data management plan, to submitting your materials to a digital repository.  Using tDAR, we will demonstrate how to organize, upload, and share (as appropriate) your digital archaeological information.

What to Do with Your Archaeology Dissertation with Mitch Allen

You’ve finally finished your dissertation and, though you never want to see it again, suggestions from those mentors and friends who encouraged you get it published sticks in your mind. What do you do to get your dissertation published? This workshop provides you with concrete suggestions on how to view the dissertation as a comprehensive research project and how to create a publication and promotion strategy so your ideas and knowledge can reach the broadest possible market and positively influence your career in archaeology. We will discuss pursuing book vs article publication, traditional vs open access venues, the amount of revision that your work is likely to require, and the role of dissertation-based publications in a career plan. Participants should come with an abstract and table of contents of their dissertation, completed or not, from which we will develop a strategic plan.

Introduction to GIS for Archaeology with Ed Gonzalez-Tennant

his webinar provides participants with an introduction to the best practices regarding archaeological GIS. The webinar is divided into three general parts. The first discusses the various ways we can divide the use of GIS and how this affects project planning. The second part explores best practices for data collection and creation, and points users towards commonly used geospatial data warehouses. The final section examines traditional and emerging forms of geospatial analysis (e.g., visibility analysis, least cost path analysis). The webinar's content is oriented towards practical solutions and test workflows, with particular attention paid to cultural heritage management applications.

Edward Harris on The Stratification of Time and the Harris Matrix

The year 1973 precipitated a revolution in archaeological theory and excavation practice with the invention of the Harris Matrix, which yet supplies the only way to see time on archaeological sites. The new thinking was encapsulated in the first textbook (1979) devoted to Principles of Archaeological Stratigraphy, which you can download for free at www.harrismatrix.com and should peruse for this class. Those principles are fundamental to the gathering of primary stratigraphic data from archaeological sites, the bedrock, the foundation of all later theories and suppositions.

3D Documentation and Fieldwork: New Strategies and Approaches with Fabrizio Galeazzi

An introduction to popular 3D digital techniques (laser scanner, photogrammetry, computer vision) used for intra-site data recording in archaeology today. Highlighting relative advantages and disadvantages in the use of the different technologies, we will also discuss controversial and debated topics related to the use of 3D digital reproductions in heritage and archaeology, such as accuracy and authenticity. We will then show you how 3D technologies and applications can enhance analysis and interpretation of archaeological data during excavation and post-excavation phases. We will begin engaging with the entire process, from the 3D data acquisition to the 3D data
processing. We will end in discussion of how to visualize the data coming from the different
3D documentation techniques described.
