Title: Computer simulation in archaeology. Art, science or nightmare?
Author: Barceló, Juan Anton
Issued date:
Abstract:
[EN] By simulating historical processes and not just the archaeological material, I intend to explain social causality at the micro and macro levels. The target is no more an archaeological artifact but a human society at ...[+]


[ES] Se propone ampliar el concepto mismo de Arqueología Virtual a la simulación de sociedades humanas y no sólo la simulación de objetos que existieron en el pasado. La idea es poder disponer de una herramienta para ...[+]
