GIS Guide to Good Practice
Section 2: A brief introduction to GIS and Archaeology

2.2 Some core references

Throughout the discussion reference will be made to a carefully selected set of mainstream references that should be easily accessible. The following four volumes of published conference papers (in order of conference not publication: Allen et al. 1990; Aldenderfer and Maschner 1996; Maschner 1996; Lock and Stancic 1995) act as a useful core framework. These provide a considerable range of case-studies and theoretical discussions together with valuable overviews of the development of GIS in archaeology (for example, Harris and Lock 1990; Kvamme 1995; Harris and Lock 1995; Maschner 1996). Another important source of references are the proceedings of the annual Computer Applications in Archaeology conference (CAA), which saw its first GIS paper in 1986. From 1992 CAA became more international and all aspects of the theory and application of GIS now form a major component of its programme (the proceedings in order from 1986 until 1995 are: Laflin 1986; Ruggles and Rahtz 1988; Rahtz 1988; Rahtz and Richards 1989; Lockyear and Rahtz 1991; Lock and Moffett 1992; Andresen et al. 1993; Wilcock and Lockyear 1995; Huggett and Ryan 1995; Kamermans and Fennema 1996). Two particularly useful web-based resources are GIS in Archaeology Bibliography 1995 (to find this bibliography, look in the left frame under "bibliographies") and a list of Archaeologists using GIS (to find this list, click on "GIS using Archaeologists" in the right frame).
