ObjectiveHelpExamplesSourcesCopyright and LicenseObjective biblatex-archaeology provides a collection of style files for LaTeΧ’ biblatex bibliography package. It is designed for the use of German researchers into material culture, especially prehistorians and medieval archaeologists. Generally their bibliography styles are more or less variations of the guide lines of the Römisch-Germanische Kommission (RGK), nowithstanding of being verbose, numeric or inline styles. I tried to develop generic styles, that cover all the needs and allow for easy generation of local styles. Refer to the enclosed manual document for further details.
Since biblatex-archaeology is an extension to the well-known biblatex package, first make sure that you have a basic knowledge of the latter. Then read the main part of the biblatex-archaeology manual carefully.
If there are any concerns, use the comment function below on this page, or use the GitHub tracker (see sources). If it should not be available to the public, you can drop me an e-mail employing the contact form of this site (via menu link).
There are two ways to obtain the sources. The development code is hosted on GitHub. It includes Perl and shell scripts to speed up the development process but lacks ready-to-install LaTeX sources and PDF docs as those are generated from a DocStrip container. The GitHub files are divided into a development and a master branch. The development branch holds the current status of the development while the master branch provides the development code of the current release.
As it provides only the current release you can obtain past releases here. These are the original archives as were uploaded to CTAN. A TDS compliant archive is included starting with v2.2. A changelog is to be found in the manual.
