Embracing digitality is to a large degree a question of competence of critically understanding a branch of technologies, their use, usefulness and direct and indirect cultural repercussions. It is fair to claim that both quantitatively and qualitatively, there is more archaeological and archaeologically relevant information than before and new copious possibilities to use and reuse, analyse and reanalyse this information. A vital aspect in the process is to maintain a critical sensitivity to the limits of both large and narrow categories and an understanding of their consequences to archaeological information work and the conduct of archaeology. This is a task of all archaeological information workers from field archaeologists to geographic information system specialists, curators and information managers, and obviously, especially those who are engaged in educating and training future generations of professionals.
