Contextualized Digital Archaeology – Dissertation Chapter

Crowdsourcing criticism? Okay, so probably not. I have been working in the field in Qatar (today I removed a surface and two postholes! The glamour of it all is overwhelming!) while trying to write my dissertation, with mixed results. I have a couple of chapters that are pretty ready, but I thought I’d start posting them  online for comment. Merry Christmas (?)

The chapter that I’m posting first is my methodology chapter, which is also decidedly political. This is pretty scary folks. Be nice.

WARNING – SUPER ROUGH DRAFT! NO BIBLIOGRAPHY! NO PICTURES! READ AT YOUR PERIL!

  1. How exciting – postholes are just about the most important features you can find !
    [- especially in Qatar, which, I understand it, was not heavily forested, so they must have a certain rarity value]

  2. Thanks for posting this; after a quick skim, I’m looking very much forward to a more in-depth read; so much of what you’re talking about is making me think about what I’m doing and how I’m doing it.
