ARCfieldLAB. Innovative sensor technologies and methodologies for archaeological fieldwork: network, knowledge base, and dissemination

Years: 2022-2024

Supervision: Jitte Waagen

In collaboration with: Rijksdienst voor Cultureel Erfgoed (RCE), Stichting Infrastructuur Kwaliteitsborging Bodembeheer (SIKB), Vereniging Ondernemers in Archeologie (VOiA), Leiden University (LEI), Free University of Amsterdam (VU), University of Amsterdam (UvA).

Project description: ARCfieldLAB is an E-RIHS-funded project aimed at improving the quality of archaeological fieldwork and research in the Netherlands.

This will be done by collecting information on the most important technological and methodological innovations of the last ten years in the field of archaeological remote sensing. In addition, expert meetings in which experience in applying these techniques can be exchanged will be organized. This knowledge will be disseminated in a publicly-accessible online knowledge base of resources and best practices.

Additionally, by conducting several case studies the potential of technical innovations which have so far not seen wide application in Dutch archaeology will be tested and the efficacy of combining multiple remote sensing data sources will be assessed.
