This page illustrates the research paths followed by the main authors involved in the birth and development of archaeological computing, through the selection of some relevant quotations extracted from the articles they published in Archeologia e Calcolatori. This selection mainly concerns the first issues of the journal, which cannot yet be consulted on-line.
The evidence of these scholars, almost all members of the Scientific Committee of the journal, helps us better understand how technology has influenced their theoretical and methodological choices and highlights the consistency of purpose which has characterised the research activity of these pioneers.
