Introduction
P. Stenborg currently works at the Department of Historical Studies, University of Gothenburg. P. does research in Archaeology. A recent project is 'Archaeological information in the digital society'. He has particularly done research about the prehistory of the populations of the South American continent, where he has conducted archaeological fieldwork in Brazil as well as in Argentina. He has also great interest in studying how digital field method and computer based research has come to revolutionize the archaeological practice.

Article
Recent studies have shown that pre-Columbian societies in the Amazon undertook significant landscape modifications, including earthworks. Our fieldwork has revealed that pre-Columbian settlements in the Santarém Region, Lower Amazon, were not limited to the vicinities of permanent water courses, as formerly often assumed. Instead, numerous archaeol...

This article applies a neo-documentalist approach to explore disciplinary documentation and document practices, assumed to condition disciplinary knowledge-making. The aim is to show how conceptions and materialities of what counts as documentation and documents are intertwined with changing and persisting disciplinary and sub-disciplinary practice...

Link to fulltext:http://hdl.handle.net/2077/42099. Studies of the human societies that existed in the Amazon Basin prior to the European expansion into this region faces, in several ways, a more difficult task than the corresponding research on most other parts of the world. Amazonian archaeology is conducted in an environment characterized by swif...

As only limited previous archaeological fieldwork had been carried out at upland sites on the Belterra Plateau, preparatory fieldwork included the location and delimitation of archaeological sites through regional surveys (Stenborg et al. 2012). A recurrent pattern identified and documented in thes...

We tested if hand-carried field proximal soil sensing (PSS) can be used to map the distribution of anthropogenic Amazonian Dark Earths (ADE). ADE soils are rich in archaeological artefacts, nutrients, organic matter and carbon in the very stable form of pyrogenic carbon, also referred to as black carbon or biochar. To test the capacity of PSS to de...

Uma das áreas mais promissoras para o estudo das sociedades pré-colombi¬anas complexas na bacia do rio Amazonas é a área do baixo curso dos rios Tapajós, Trombetas e Nhamundá. Há relatos escritos sobre os Konduri e os Tapajó, apresentando informações sobre a sua organização social regional, padrões de comércio, a abundância de alimentos, e o mundo...
Thesis
The Andean region in general fell relatively promptly under Spanish rule during the conquista of the 16th century. The Calchaquí region of north-western Argentina, where the Pichao site is situated, constitutes an exception in that respect. Here, what appear to have been broad native alliances were able to prevent the establishment of Spanish autho...

This paper describes a project in progress dealing with visualization and mediation of archaeological and cultural heritage information by integrating digital tools in a museum exhibition. In the project an interactive, combined digital and physical model representing the Göta river valley in south-western Sweden is developed. The objective is to u...

Project
Digitisation of archaeological information and cultural heritage assets has been one of the cornerstones of the digital society debate. However, at the same time when nations have made considerable investments in the digitalisation of archaeological heritage, we know very little about its implications to the usability of archaeological information for different stakeholder groups from citizens to researchers, museum professionals, landowners and property developers. We know a lot about technical challenges, but very little on how information practices influence the usability of information. The aim of the project is to 1) map the implications and opportunities of the digitalisation of information and information work in the domain of archaeology and material cultural heritage throughout the lifespan of archaeological information from the field to museums and community planning, and 3) to develop and evaluate conceptual and practical methods and procedures for enhancing archaeological information work in the digitalised environment. The project addresses a series of significant recognised challenges within archaeology and, because of the broad societal implications of archaeological information from cultural heritage, museums and media industry to community planning (the legal requirements to protect archaeological sites and its consequences to infrastructure development and land us such as construction of houses, roads and railways), in the digitalised society as a whole. The project is financed by the Swedish Research Council Grant (340-2012-5751) in 2013-2016/7.
