Last House on the Hill is the digital multigraphic mirror of the printed monograph of the same name (published by Cotsen Institute of Archaeology Press of UCLA) that is the final report of the Berkeley Archaeologists at Çatalhöyük (BACH) project, in which a team from the University of California at Berkeley excavated a group of Neolithic 9000-year old buildings (1997-2003) at this famous cultural heritage location in Central Anatolia, Turkey. The digital edition of Last House on the Hill is a product of the Center for Digital Archaeology using their creative Codifi engine. It does much more than provide a digital presentation framework for publishing an archaeological monograph. It embeds, interweaves, entangles, and otherwise relates the complete project database (including all media formats such as photographs, videos, maps, line drawings as well as data analysis and interpretation) with the final synthetic contents held in the printed edition in an open access, sharable platform.
For the Center for Digital Archaeology at UC Berkeley (CoDA), this is a benchmark program where we want to set our standards and define our workflows for digital publishing of complex datasets in archaeology, using the advanced capabilities of our “featured” semantic tool, Codifi.
