Venue: ST276 (Stewart House, second floor) and streamed live on the web at historyspot.org.uk

The central theme of the seminar series, is how digital technologies have enabled researchers into the past to gain new insights, new views and new perspectives on their subject which would otherwise be missed. This presentation will discuss such technologies in the context of two major projects carried out by MOLA, and will consider how digital technologies have effected the capture, manipulation and presentation of various types of data concentrating on the spatial.

Peter Rauxloh is internationally known as a leading exponent of the use of databases in archaeology. As Database and Geographic Information Systems Development Manager for MOLA, Peter is responsible for providing strategic direction on the exploitation of both these systems to ensure disciplined data capture, validation, analysis and presentation so as to enable holistic archaeological interpretation. He is also the author of the Locating London's Past blog.
