Question
I am a computer science graduate and interested archaeology.Is there any need of computer science students in the field of archaeology?

Answer
Hi Debdatta,

The simple answer is YES!  Every thing from GIS to ground penetrating radar to 3D reconstruction of sites.  Many years ago when I was a student I worked on computers and spatial disbursing modeling of artifacts and sites.  Still used today.

Good luck!
