Like any other discipline and field of knowledge, in recent decades archaeology has also adapted to and benefited from the emergence of the information and communication technologies (ICT). Computer technology has allowed us to improve a series of tasks, some of them very mechanical, that now take far less time and, above all, provide much better results. Another of the major advantages of the digital revolution is the ability to store quickly and easily vast amounts of data that can then be reused in diverse ways. In general, archaeologists have detected a profound change, especially in the following spheres of IT applications:

a) Data storage (above all sketches and pictures)
b) Databases
c) Geographic information systems (GIS)
d) Virtual situation
e) Internet communications

The acquisition of new equipment and computer programs has made it possible to speed up and improve these processes and to offer a new range of possibilities and products that would have been unthinkable just a few years ago.
