I think that for Archaeology, place is central and GIS widely used, and 
has been for many years, before the term 'Digital Humanities' was coined.

Of the 74 projects in my list, 12 deal with classical and medieval 
Europe / Mediterranean. That's about 16%, and points to the strength of 
GIS in this field. But it may be that archaeology is under-represented, 
because rather than producing *digital projects*, they produced *data* 
which was shared in ways other than being displayed as part of a website.
