Abstract: Archaeology has emerged as one of the most dynamic and innovative disciplines in the humanities and social sciences, employing a truly interdisciplinary, collaborative approach and a continually expanding array of analytical research tools. Computer aided analysis of archaeological data is remarkably challenging given the heterogeneous nature of the material. Archaeologists generally aim to discover patterns, spatial relationships and other associations between different traits of the archaeological record. However, given the idiosyncratic and highly personal nature in which archaeological data is collected and analyzed, identifying these patterns and relationships offers many challenges. The Computational Research on the Ancient Near East (CRANE) initiative seeks to build an international multidisciplinary research collaboration, comprised of archaeologists, computer scientists, and paleo-environmental specialists, with the capacity to leverage a burgeoning corpus of data fr om a number of archaeological sites and fundamentally transform our knowledge of the civilizations of the ancient Middle East. The CRANE initiative is developing a sustainable, scalable, user-driven vehicle for large-scale data management and cross-project data integration, to harness the full evidentiary range produced by this uniquely rich cultural legacy. At the same time we are developing tools for data mining techniques, and to analyze simulate ancient societies using agent-based models of behavior. (More)
