Abstract

With the increasing power of personal computers, archaeologists are provided with new means of treating the huge collections of data produced by major archaeological excavations. We describe here Archeo-Net, an archaeological data base (DB) coupled with an expert system (ES) containing graphical processing capabilities, developed at the the Institut de Palontologie Humaine (IPH) and the Institut de Topologie et Dynamique des Systèmes (ITODYS) in Paris for the management of paleontological and prehistoric data of La Caune de l’Arago, Tautavel (France) and many other archaeological sites of south of France.
