On 13 November 2018, Mark Groenhuijzen successfully defended his PhD thesis in the Aula of VU University. An important milestone in his career, and for the project! Therefore, many congratulations to Mark, and we wish him every success in continuing his scientific career.
For those of you eager to read his thesis we ask for a little bit more of your patience, since Mark is preparing to publish an edited version early next year. We will keep you posted.
We are happy to announce that Mark Groenhuijzen will be publicly defending his PhD thesis entitled “Palaeogeographic analysis of the Dutch part of the Roman limes and its hinterland” on 13 Nov 2018 at 13:45 in the Aula at the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam. A milestone for Mark and for the project!
Our latest project paper has just appeared as Open Access in Journal of Archaeological Sciences: Reports, and details methods to compare network reconstruction techniques.
The filmed presentations of the project conference are now available on YouTube, the links can be found here. Thanks go to Doug Rocks-Macqueen (Landward Research) for the video registration and presentation.

This week, the proceedings of the LAC2014 conference have been published in Open Access at lac2014.proceedings.nl. It includes the papers of the session “Computational modeling in landscape archaeology: back to the drawing board?” organized and edited by Philip Verhagen, Marieka Brouwer Burg and Thomas G. Whitley. Two project-related papers can be found here: Simulating the Farm: Computational Modelling of Cattle and Sheep Herd Dynamics for the Analysis of Past Animal Husbandry Practices and Modelling the Dynamics of Demography in the Dutch Roman Limes Zone.
Last week, we also published a paper with Ivo Vossen in Journal of Archaeological Science: Reports, on dealing with the chronological difficulties in our archaeological database. It is available in Open Access: Now you see them, now you don’t: Defining and using a flexible chronology of sites for spatial analysis of Roman settlement in the Dutch river area.
Registration for our project conference on 26-27 January 2017 is now open. You can find the preliminary programme here.
