Abstract

This chapter describes the application of geospatial technologies in archaeology and explains how they present new ways of understanding and visualizing the past. It examines the value of using key technologies of GIS and remote sensing (including Lidar), and appraises the contribution that 3D models make to the interpretation of archaeological sites for researchers and wider audiences. The limitations of geospatial technologies are discussed, which includes a critical assessment of the assumed objectivity of geospatial data and their role in constructing archaeological ideas.
