Abstract

Our session unites the scholarly disciplines of Archaeology (also Bioarchaeology), Anthropology and Digital Humanities. It will discuss archaeological data deriving from Early medieval cemeteries in Austria and related artefacts as well as their analogue and digital documentation. We will introduce our Digital Project THANADOS (The Anthropological and Archaeological Database of Sepultures) to the public, which creates an online repository of the aforesaid data and thus enables new research questions and in-depth comparison. Therefore, we transgress borders between academic disciplines with our digital approach, especially because of the fact that we do interact strongly with the sector of Software Engineering in our research.
