Urban Archaeology and “Correct” documentation

Schermafbeelding 2013-09-25 om 19.53.03On november 11-13 2013 a conference on cultural heritage and new technologies is held in Vienna Austria. This year’s topic of the Conference is Urban Archaeology and “Correct” Documentation – Documenting the Data.
Documentation of archaeological and cultural heritage sites is at the heart of the archaeological process and an important component in cultural heritage research and presentation. It is an essential step without which interpretation and analysis are not possible. It is what makes archaeology and cultural heritage “scientific”.
Maybe we are storytellers. If so, the type of story we tell is heavily influenced by our way of collecting and organising our archaeological data.
But can we speak about CORRECT documentation or should we talk only about usable and non-usable documentation?
