Open Data Can Empower Archaeologists

Over the last few years, the DART project collected large amounts of archaeological data, and as part of the project, a group of archaeologists created a purpose-built data repository to catalogue data and make them available, using CKAN, the Open Knowledge Foundation’s (OKF) open-source data catalogue and repository. In their recent blog post of OKF, Anthony Beck and Dave Harrison talk about the project and its progress, and revisit the meaning of open data and open science for archaeologists.
