DeepFIN is an EU-funded Marie Sklodowska-Curie Actions Individual Fellowships programme project that seeks reassess and analyse Finnish archaeological and historical datasets.
The development of human societies has been studied extensively by historians and social scientists. In Finland, there is a significant and underexplored amount of digitised archaeological material, such as the Finnish Heritage Agency’s database of archaeological sites and monuments. DeepFIN will use geographic information systems and other digital humanities methodologies to create a new understanding of the deep history of archaeological landscapes, historical settlement and material culture development from the Iron Age (500 BCE to 1200/1300 CE) to the Middle Ages (1200/1300 to 1520 CE).
This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under the Marie Sklodowska-Curie grant agreement No 896044.
