The second volume of the CAA 2012 proceedings was published a few days ago and is freely available from this link. The volume, that covers the full breadth of computer applications in archaeology, also includes a paper I co-authored with Cristina Corsi, while I was working at the “Radiography of the Past” project. The paper offers a brief account of how computational methodologies have been used to enrich the interpretation of archaeological datasets collected mainly via non-destructive multy-survey methods at the Roman site of Ammaia. GIS-based data integration, data fusion, 3D reconstruction and visualisation are briefly discussed, while emphasis is given to the yet largely unexplored potential of urban network analysis to enhance the interpretation of ancient street networks revealed with non-destructive survey methods. A high resolution pdf of the paper is available from this link. More results on this work will be published in a forthcoming publication.
Additional informaton on the archaeological work undertaken at Ammaia can be found on the website of the project, including a full publication list. Furthermore, a booklet and dvd on Ammaia have been made available via the website of the project and can be downloaded for free.
