Abstract/Index

Information connected to archaeological finds is highly relevant, but no information system is specifically available to manage it. The introduction of a new Information System to track events and record information related to the life cycle of each find is a big challenge, as it requires an adapta- tion between technology and organization. By means of a case study based on a structuration theory perspective, this paper describes the interactions between professionals and technological experts and between users and technology in the creation process of a new information system devoted to finds management in archaeology. Such interactions happened in the context of a project in which a system to manage information on finds was designed, experimented, discussed, and then developed.
