Example text

The second volume, for 1989–90, has almost 700 pages with a much better index. For several years, until it began to get out of date, the HCY was an extremely valuable resource, fulfilling the role originally taken by the Computers and the Humanities Directory of Scholars Active, which had ceased to appear by the early 1970s. Preparing the HCY was a truly enormous undertaking and no further volumes appeared. By the early 1990s, the general consensus was that in future an online database would be a more effective resource.

The archaeologist’s work is, first, to find the material remains of our ancestors, second, to unearth those remains in ways that maximize the information they can convey, and, finally, to interpret the evidence. Finding those remains may be done by excavation or surface survey, but both processes require the destruction of the very evidence that is the first fruit of the work. In some cases, the destruction is literal and complete, as when an archaeologist must dig through one level of a site to find another; often the destruction is not so complete but involves the removal of objects from their physical contexts.

Work in this early period is often characterized as being hampered by technology, where technology is taken to mean character sets, input/output devices and the slow turnaround of batch processing systems. However, researchers did find ways of dealing with some of these problems, albeit in a cumbersome way. What is more characteristic is that key problems which they identified are still with us, notably the need to look at ‘‘words’’ beyond the level of the graphic string, and to deal effectively with variant spellings, multiple manuscripts, and lemmatization.
