Archaeoinformatics is a website, which in a manner much like Local Approach, offers information, news and reports in the growing field of Archaeoinformatics. Archaeoinformatics describes the connections between archaeology and computer sciences. As they describe it:

“The term combines Computational and Digital Archaeology. Computational Archaeology is concerned with mathematical, data-driven solutions to archaeological research questions. Digital Archaeology is more focussed on visualisation, documentation and preservation. So, Archaeoinformatics is a subdiscipline of Archaeology and offers computational and visual solutions for archaeological problems.”

The site is a valuable resource for professionals in the field seeking to improve their skills or for new ideas. The page offers topics such as  presentation of projects, Archaeogaming, Computational Archaeology, Digital Archaeology and more:
