On these boards we often discuss archaeological finds with little access to the actual data recovered by archaeologists in the field. Sometimes, we
are lucky enough to have actual academic articles posted, but often these articles are not a great source of actual data. Many dismiss the articles
conclusions as "mainstream" interpretations. I've always thought it would be awesome if people here, could objectively look at collected data from
real world dig sites and argue their own interpretation of the data. It seems now you can
In a couple months a cool new "arm chair archaeology app" will give people like you and me access to actual archaeological data, for free. I hope
this app isn't childish and actually provides robust information, but none the less, I think the idea of sharing data and making it part of the public
domain is awesome for the field of archaeology and may be of great use to discussion boars such as this one.
check out this story on the app.
