This work is a miscellaneous edition of several contributions that focus on the latest digital developments within the same archaeological field in which they are currently employed. The work doesn’t aim to offer a summary of the progress that this field of research has made in recent years, but rather to highlight international studies that, although focused on different contexts (landscape, materials, structures, databases, etc.), represent the result of research carried out with the same intention. If up to now, in fact, we have been talking about the “digitalisation” of our research, now it seems more appropriate to talk about the “ digitalization” of the researcher, which implies a change of perspective in our way of observing data. This could be the germ for a new true digital revolution in our scientific sector in which scholars are at the same time creators, developers, and users of their own technological solutions, conceived as instruments of investigation to answer a precise archaeological question. All the contributions collected here represent concrete case studies in which the resolution of a specific research need was subtended by the development of an algorithm, software, tools, or method in which the archaeologist was an active part of the realisation process, not only in the experimental phase but also and above all in the creation one.
