Simulation modelling is increasingly used by archaeologists to
reconstruct and understand past societies. They are successfully
building and running simulations of agrarian production, trade,
cultural transmission, settlement development and movement, to
name a few. With the proliferation of modelling approaches, it is
imperative that these simulations are made accessible and can be
used as input for future research.
The vision of the community is to provide a platform for all
simulation modellers in the field of archaeology, to facilitate
training of the next generation of computational modellers and
to raise the profile of modelling work and thus improve
communication and integration of the community within the
wider archaeological audience. As a matter of principle, the
community aims to follow and promote best practices set by the
Open Science framework.
Members of the group will organise an annual session at the
EAA, organize a round table during the conference and engage
in other activities, such as training workshops.
