4 of 8 people found the following review helpful By John Matlock on March 19, 2006
Format: Hardcover
The list of reasons as to why a computer couldn't predict the location of an archaeological site covers at least a page of small type: we don't know where the water was in those times, we don't know the soil type in those days, we don't know the cultural or social values of the time and how they might have influenced site location.

In spite of this, the advent of ever better GIS software and higher performance computers have lead researchers around the world to being using GIS in a predictive manner to help identify potential sites worth investigating.

This book is a summary of research conducted around the world by people attempting to do just that. GIS can of course be used to map teraine and other features such as springs, both those flowing now and those from the past that have left traces. Combining these data with prediction equasions developed by the researcher have produced some interesting studies that point to success.

The book has a series of contributors from around the world: France, Greece, UK, Slovenia, Australia and of course many different organizations in the U.S. This book represents the state of the art in the field as it is known today.
