An Enchantment of Digital Archaeology – A Visual Introduction

Shawn Graham’s Introduction to An Enchantment of Digital Archaeology (July 2020)

Aptly using sonic and visual digital tools to introduce An Enchantment of Digital Archaeology, Shawn Graham invites us to take part in what he has dubbed a “practical digital necromancy.”

From the video:

This is a video about digital archaeology. It’s to support my new book, An Enchantment of Digital Archaeology. One thing that I’d really like people to take away from reading the book is the idea that it’s ok to play, to experiment, for things to break, and in the breaking, to see something new. Digital archaeology is to my mind a kind of experimental archaeology: we learn through the doing. So welcome; enjoy; I hope that you are enchanted/confounded/inspired.
