Embedded Interpretation

So, once upon a time, a naive undergraduate from the University of Texas applied for graduate school in archaeology.  She sent out a statement of purpose that boiled down to: “I want to be able to embed archaeological information in the landscape, and I want other people to be able to add to that information…on my cellphone.”

Three years later, that’s what I did.  There’s several ways to do this, and this is obviously a kludge, but it’s a start.  I’ll probably load the full documentation up to the Presidio field blog later tonight.

  1. I don’t know whether to be very excited or very scared by that. That’s a fascinating approach to landscape. I can see how having that kind of connection means you can fix interpretations over a site as you dig it. I look forward to seeing how it develops.
