Archaeology

Our main hobby (and what we are studying at University) is archaeology, and with my technical background I am most interested in GIS.

Archaeology has numerous academic facets to it , but essentially asks questions like…

  • What is this thing I’ve found?
  • Who made it?
  • What was it for?
  • Is it the only one here?
  • Is it the only thing here?
  • What were the people doing here?
  • Were there more of these and was it because this was a gathering place or town?
  • How far does this town extend?
  • When was it here?
  • Was there anything here beforehand?
