CIAMS Workshop: Big Data with Ben Arbuckle

big data ArbucklePlease come join Ben Arbuckle (UNC Chapel Hill) and other grad students for a brown-bag workshop on Tuesday, March 17th at noon in the Landscapes and Objects Lab (125 McGraw). Ben will talk about “big data” projects in archaeology, which combine data sets from large areas and use them to answer large-scale questions related to things such as the timing and routes of domestication, the movement of ancient genetic populations, the origins and spread of secondary products, etc. Ben will distribute some interesting things to read and then open it up for a discussion about trends in the discipline, research design, opportunities, and more.
