Useful GIS and Archaeology Links
A good place to start besides these pages are the archaeology pages at about.com or by doing a search at google.com. However, as these may overwhelm you with information, have a look at this growing list for a place to start.
General GIS Sites
GIS Guide to Good Practice - an online guide to good GIS etiquette and practice, edited by Mark Gillings and Alicia Wise with contributions by Mark Gillings, Peter Halls, Gary Lock, Paul Miller, Greg Phillips, Nick Ryan, David Wheatley, and Alicia Wise
Paul Anderson's Links Page - large depository of updated GIS links, particulary good for US and general data stuff.
Professor Kenneth L. Kvamme - personal page of Ken Kvamme, links to his own sites which should be known to any archaeologists interested in using GIS. Of particular interest is the North American Database of Archaeological Geophysics (NADAG).
