Open Source at the Lazaret

Looks like IOSA is not the only group of passionate archaeologists who develop free/open source software to fulfil their research needs and release their source code for the community. The LDPL (Laboratoire Départemental de Préhistoire du Lazaret) maintains open source software mostly developed internally, but their source code is released to the Open Source Community under the GPL 2 licence. Archeobases is an archaeological database manager written in Python (another choice we share), it’s developed mainly for the research project at Lazaret even though a new refactored version is due in the next future. You can find more details about Archeobases and the LDPL committment to free archaeological software at .
