Apologies for cross-posting!

Dear colleagues,

We welcome submissions to our session, #361: ‘Weaving Big Data for the Digital Middle Ages’ at the next meeting of the European Association of Archaeologists in Belfast (20th August – 2nd September 2023), organised by Stefan Eichert (Natural History Museum, Vienna), Petar Parvanov (Bulgarian Academy of Sciences, Sofia), Nina Richards (Austrian Academy of Sciences, Vienna) and Mária Vargha (Charles University, Prague). Our session is a follow-up to a very successful meeting last year, aiming to bring together archaeologists and medievalists showcasing diverse digital approaches to the research of the Medieval era.

The session is interested in case studies enhancing the narrative value of the traditional foundation of our discipline like artifacts, ecofacts, and built features. The digital tools allow fascinating and thought-provoking reconstruction of their original context and the often-invisible networks connecting disparate source types. Further, the digital approach intertwines with multiple themes highlighted on this year’s event through its sustainability, accessibility, and expanding relevance in the contemporary world.

The session welcomes papers focusing on the Middle Ages, within the following topics:

-Digital collection of archaeological sites

-Digital collection and analysis with burial archaeology

-Digital analysis of large-scale archaeological data

-Digital analysis of Medieval processes by archaeological data

-Digital collections and analysis of Medieval material culture

Abstracts can be submitted via https://eaa.klinkhamergroup.com/eaa2023/ until the 9th of February. Please don't hesitate to contact us if you have any questions about the session. Looking forward to seeing many of you there!

On behalf of the organisers,

Mária Vargha
