ARKWORK - Archaeological practices and knowledge work in the digital environment

The COST action ARKWORK is aimed at forming an interdisciplinary network that will collect the knowledge and experiences of researchers and projects, national as well as European, in producing and exploiting archaeological knowledge. The network thus intends to contribute to the coordination of current efforts to study archaeological practices, and the potential for social and economic exploitation of archaeological knowledge in the digital environment. The network seeks to establish the state of the art in promoting archaeological knowledge and its application for the benefit of society, and to provide expert guidance in the production, validation, reproduction, management and use of archaeological knowledge. Apart from networking and information activities, the project collects and charts basic information and approaches concerning archaeological practices in field research, collections, and the production and validation of knowledge, through a combination of approaches from archaeological theory and methodology, information science, computer science, and social studies of science and technology.
