Cameron Browne (Associate Professor, Maastricht University):

"Digitally Modelling the History of Traditional Games"

 

While there is ample evidence of ancient games in the archaeological and historical records, we know very little about how those games were actually played. The ERC-funded Digital Ludeme Project (http://ludeme.eu) seeks to enhance our understanding of traditional games and their development throughout recorded human history using modern computational techniques. This talk will outline the project -- its motivation, aims and methodology -- and explain how we are combining different perspectives on the problem from multiple disciplines to found the new research field of Digital Archaeoludology.
