Lots of archaeological news these days in Open Access News, the primary collector of Open Access related information and discussion. This is probably a direct consequence of the rapid advancements in the field. My main hope now is that established journals begin moving to OA, especially academy-based ones (i.e. journals that are not tied to a publisher but are published directly by a research institution).

OA dataset from archaeology textbook
The Quantitative Archaeology Wiki has posted the dataset from the textbook Digging Numbers by Mike Fletcher and Gary Lock, along with a tutorial of using the statistical software R to analyze the data. (OK, I already knew this one)
