Digital Archaeology Working Group

Digital Archaeology Working Group

The Digital Archaeology Working Group is a network for Archon members interested in computational archaeology. In this, we are actively collaborating with the Digital Archaeology Group at University of Leiden, and with CAA-NL/FL, the Dutch-Flemish chapter of CAA International.

On this page we will post announcements about events and other relevant news about digital applications in archaeology. Furthermore, we will organize events specifically for the Archon membership.

If you want to become a member, and receive mailings from the working group, please subscribe here.


The annual Computer Applications in Archaeology Conference CAA2020 will be held in Oxford from 14-17 April 2020. The call for papers will open soon.

The CAA-NL/FL chapter meeting will this year be held in Leuven on 29-30 October 2019. There are still spaces for presentations, contact the organisers at
