        •     1960’s & 1970’s; the mainframe
        •     1980’s: personal computers as business/research tools
                – Limited home computing
                – Commodore Pet, Commodore 64, Amstrad CPC, Intel x86, Commodore Amiga,
                  Atari ST, Apple Mac
                – The rise of the consoles: Nintendo, Sega
                – Early archaeological databases
        •     1990’s: computing becomes mainstream
                – Email and communications
                – Publicly accessible internet
                – Increased use of databases and Geographic Information Systems in archaeology

                  diary/organiser
                – The ‘cloud’
                – The expectation of being able to use the web for pretty much anything including
                  finding out about heritage
