I am an archaeological methodologist exploring new methods and ways in the digital analysis of archaeological data focussing on spatial distribution and network analysis. The main sources for these analyses are sites, finds and different other archaeological objects which are investigated with the help of Geografic Information Systems (GIS) and statistical programming tools like Python and R. With more and more available digital data, this data science offers a new way of understanding the past. I think these methods can help us as archaeologists to uncover aspects of the (pre-)historic societies which were invisible beforehand and can be used to re-evaluate theories and concepts from a new perspective.
