*Deadline:* June 30, 2018
Archaeology is a domain that has intersections with information research
both as an empirical domain of investigation and as a perspective to
inquire into how people interact with information. The relevance of
discussing the links between the disciplines of information and archaeology
relates to the increasing societal significance of cultural heritage around
the globe. In archaeology, improved understanding of archaeological
information work, knowledge creation and management processes has been
acknowledged as being critical in managing and exploiting the escalating
amounts of archaeological data from archaeological excavations conducted
prior to land-use around the world. From a theoretical and practical
perspective, archaeology brings together methodological perspectives
ranging from the humanities to the natural sciences, and serves as an
interesting showcase of the problems, challenges and opportunities related
to inter- and multi-disciplinary domains of information practices. Finally,
similar to multiple areas of humanities and social science research,
archaeology has provided inspiration and functioned as a powerful metaphor
in critical research in the information field.
