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.
