Institute for Digital Archaeology


Center for Advanced Spatial Technologies at the University of Arkansas, Fayetteville


2010 - 2012



The Institute for Digital Archaeology was designed to provide junior scholars in archaeology with the training needed to integrate advanced geospatial technologies into their research and teaching endeavors. Fellows received semester-long residential fellowships at the University of Arkansas during which time they enrolled in three specialized courses in geospatial technologies and pursued independent research projects with the assistance of the Center for Advanced Spatial Technologies (CAST) faculty, staff and facilities. Fellows also attended colloquia focused on archaeological applications of geospatial technologies, regular meetings to discuss independent projects, and short practicum courses offered by CAST staff and visiting speakers. Following their residence at the University of Arkansas, fellows were offered a position on one of CAST's numerous archaeological field projects around the world.
