Description

Archaeology can be weird and fun, especially the digital kind. Readers of archaeology, media studies, and game studies are introduced to the wild-and-wooly side of digital archaeology: artifacts, sites, and landscapes contained within—and supporting—interactive digital built environments. Follow your guide, the reluctant digital archaeologist Charlie, to disappear into the weeds of post-landscapes, non-place cultural spaces, persistent digital spaces, software citizenship, machine-created culture, digital drift, technofossils, quantum archaeology, archaeological time, singularities, complexity and retrocausality, noise, and more. These bite-sized chapters offer new ways of interpreting humanity’s blossoming digitalia, an archaeology done at the source of creation, use, and abandonment of our electronic selves.

Dr. Andrew Reinhard is a Research Affiliate with the Institute for the Study of the Ancient World (ISAW) at New York University. He earned his PhD at the University of York (UK) with the thesis Archaeology of Digital Environments: Tools, Methods, and Approaches. In 2014 he led the team of archaeologists who excavated the Atari Burial Ground in Alamogordo, New Mexico. He is credited with coining the term "Archaeogaming" in 2013 and created and ran its eponymous blog.
