Graphic images and visual communication in archaeology
Organiser: Rob Read and Steve Allen
Group: Graphic Archaeology Group
Archaeological data can be unintelligible to those not intimately familiar with the conventions and language we employ in our everyday working lives. Graphic images are used to communicate and interpret our data, both within and beyond the discipline. They are absolutely essential to the building of effective partnerships with other elements of the Heritage sector and to interaction with other interested parties. This session sets out to explore how and why we use images to record and present archaeology to different audiences.
