The application of applications: The bump and grind of commercial archaeology

This paper takes the Day of Archaeology held in 2012 and the hosting of CAA by a commercial unit for the first time as its stimulus, to present a whistle-stop tour of some of the smaller and large challenges faced when applying computer systems to the doing of commercial archaeology in the realm of data management and capture.  It will consider the asymmetrical benefit of small incremental managed changes to system which allow us to fully exploit the bigger step-change technologies we adopt, the need to continually examine our processes, and fully consider the cost model for new technologies for robust metrics such that the benefits of new investments are actually reflected in project costs or increased capacity.
