Abstract

Electronic publication has become an accepted part of archaeology. It is seen as relatively cheap and easy to produce, giving a rapid result, as well as creating a widely accessible resource, but is it being used to its full potential?

This paper will address the issues which have been created by electronic publication in archaeology, how technological capabilities rival multimedia possibilities, and how speed and ease of publication have a bearing on the quality of presentation. Is it good enough to use the Internet for dissemination alone, or should we be focussing more upon the possibilities available through this alternative medium?
