The organization of labour in archaeology in terms of decision making and capacity building. In the field, laboratory and the in digital laboratory, positions that involve decision-making are negatively correlated with the ease of access to capacity. Training for entry-level positions is more easily attained than for specialist positions and there is no direct path to becoming a digital specialist from experience in data entry alone.

Postcolonial and Indigenous Perspectives in Digital Archaeology


This chapter examines digital archaeology in the Canadian context through postcolonial and Indigenous perspectives. The chapter demonstrates that diversity practices can serve as both gateways and gatekeeping for Indigenous and racialized scholars in Canadian archaeology. Through the case of archaeology in New Brunswick, it is shown how barriers prevent First Nations peoples from ownership of their heritage and how Indigenous data governance principles can re-centre First Nations narratives, and open opportunities for Indigenous and racialized students to gain research experience and advanced training in digital method and practice.
