My Time as a Graduate Student

Wordless Wednesday – Cyber Archaeology?

on April 17, 2013

With changing technology and human relying more and more upon it, many have referred the human species as cyborgs.  We not only have become to rely so much upon technology, but it has literally became much a part of us, our culture, and our life style. You can’t leave your house without a phone that has your entire life planned in it. Are we becoming ‘cyborgs’ as a human race?

The video clip that I am featuring this week is about cyber archaeology, a way to try to preserve sites but at the same time allow individual the chance to be on a site without really being there. Is Cyber Archaeology the future of the discipline? Does it benefit or take away from archaeology?
