Hello world!

Here is an update on what you can expect on this homepage, Youtube, Twitter and Facebook in the future and what I’m working on at the moment.

Since I’m often very busy irl and during periods don’t post so much info here, I’m looking into how I can post short news from the world of archaeology and technology to release new content on a regular basis. When I have more time I will as usual post my own thoughts and ideas with the news as well.

I’m currently working on a Youtube video review of the König tripod, there is still some work to be done but it will launch this weekend! I’ll also try to get some other reviews done with some tech equipment.

I’m also working on doing a storyboard for the real trailer for Archaeology and Tech Network. I have quite some big plans for that trailer so it will take quite a lot of time to get it done probably several months as it seems like now.

In my idea of combining archaeology and technology I have started looking into archaeological software on the Internet to start with. There is quite a lot of dead links and old out-dated programs but there is also some really really good ones but that can be very hard to find. So I’ll have posts and videos about good and bad archaeological software as well.

I’m also still looking for Co.partnes so if you have a blog about archaeology, technology or both or related subjects maybe a company related to the subjects, leave a comment below so we can get in touch and maybe exchange information as well as have co-operation in different ways!

If you have any suggestions on what you would like to see here leave a comment with your feedback!

Don’t forget to check us out on Twitter, Facebook or Youtube!

Today the unboxing video of Bambo One from Wacom been released at Youtbe! The Bamboo One is a pen and tablet used for makin drawings, 3d-modeling, as an extra mouse and much more together with your computer!

So check it out!

Subscribe and comment and you’ll get more unboxing videos, reviews and news about archaeology and technology!

Also join us at Facebook Archaeology and Tech or on Twitter archaeologytech!

Hello!

Now I’ve put up a new unboxing video at Youtbe. It is the unboxing of a LED-lamp for the computer so check it out. Please comment, rate and subscribe! Take a bit of practice to make good unboxing, but I’m on my way :D.

More content coming up the coming days!

Are you intersted in participating in any form or are you in a company, institution, university, have done projects with archaeology and/or technology. Or are you a programmer, computer scientist, developer for Apple apps or other things that could be relevant or interesting and would like to contribute or develop the network as well as the relationship between archaeology and technology leave me a comment with your info and I’ll get back to you!

A large multi-million £ project have started to discover how the landscape around Stonehenge looked like when the large monument was built.

It will require millions of measurements that needs to be analysed and also it will combined with gaming technology and the result will be 2D and 3D images. The whole project will take three years and this first year 4 kilometers will be covered this year and a total of 14 kilometers will be during the time of the project.

The project leader is Professor Vince Gaffney from the University in Birmingham and he says that the aim is to show people how the area around Stonehenge looked like when the monument was built.

Stonehenge is classified as a World Heritage Site and the whole site will be covered in this project! The money for this project is from the Ludwig Boltzmann Institute for Archaeological Prospection and Virtual Archaeology, in Vienna, and the University of Birmingham, and  the National Trust and English Heritage. The news is reported from the English BBC.

This will hopefully lead to something good and having hopefully a model of the area around Stonehenge will enable people to visit the site in their computer. Since the many people visiting Stonehenge each year damage the monument a virtual model with the surrounding landscape will both benefit the archaeologists, scientists as well as the public.

In the future models like this could maybe be done to apps both for the Apple products like the Ipad and Iphone but as well released on Xbox live. One possibility would be to use the Kinect (former Project Natal) to navigate and get a feeling of space and move around inside the model!

There are great potential in technology in combination  with archaeology and that haven’t been explored. One reason behind this network and homepage is increasing awareness about technology and archaeology in new ways and see new possibilities.

I will have a lot more posts about this in the future, there are much to investigate, test, build and above all see which technology could be useful for archaeology and to create a pipeline for it!

Hello world!

After a long break I’m finally back again with a lot of things going on.

The spring was very busy, I finished a bachelor essay, got a job as an archaeologist as well as I got married! So it has been hectic but a fantastic spring and start of the summer. I’ve also been planing what I should do with the blog and how it should develop.

So now I’ve started rolling out Archaeology and Tech 2.0. I changed the layout around a bit, added more pages and so on.

The main focus will now to keep the blog live and growing but also to advance a bit to Youtube territory by start making videos. That’s also why I sometime will talk about ARATNE Archaeology and Tech Network.

My idea is to create a platform for technology and archaeology as well as a combination between those two subjects. So this blog will now be more of a homepage with a blog inside.

There will also be a Facebook group Archaeology and Tech. I’m also on Twitter as archaeologytech so add me there as well! The blog will continue giving news about archaeology and tech. For the tech stuff with computers both PC and Mac will be covered!

I will also start to make videos for Youtube about archaeological and tech news and interesting thoughts that comes to mind. I will also make tutorial and guides both on this homepage as well as videos on Youtube about models, photogrammetry, Blender and much more.

Reviewing both gear as well as books and articles will also be posted on the homepage as well as some of it on Youtube.

In the future I will also have a forum with the possibility to discuss archaeology and technology and discuss with people the possibilities of combining science with everyday technology. The forum will probably be on another homepage in the beginning but everything will be in the same place if this turns out well.

Under the links I will build a very large library of good homepages as well as Youtube videos which I hope can be of good use to you all.

So a lot will happen and it will take time so bear with me. I’m working 40 hours a week so all the fun work with ARATNE will happen sooner or later but I’ll take small steps at a time but will try hard to be quite regular on updates anyway in some form and it is major work to get everything togheter before I get a routine to create it as well.

But I hope you all look forward to it as much as I do, we are looking forward towards a bright future!

A lot of texts will be updated as well on the homepage during the coming week so stay tuned for more information. I’ll also post more information about it and present some ideas I hope some of you will be interested in participating in!
