Milco Wansleeben was born in 1961. He studied Physical Geography in Utrecht and Prehistory in Leiden and has been part of the staff of the Faculty in Leiden since graduation in 1987. He is currently appointed as lecturer for statistical analysis and computer courses. He has been involved in the development of computer applications for the Faculty from the very early start. He has participated in various projects that initiated the use of computers in archaeological fieldwork and research. He played a role in the national archaeological database Archis, digital fieldrecording, ArchWEB and Archeonet projects. In collaboration with DANS the EDNA-project was initiated that brought digital archiving of primary archeological data to the attention of Dutch archaeologists. Milco Wansleeben was IT coordinator at several archaeological excavations. He did research on the transition from hunter-gatherers to farmers in the Southeastern part of the Netherlands (Meuse Valley Project). This was one of the very early examples of the implementation of GIS in archaeological research. GIS and quantitative methods have been a focus for research and teaching throughout the years.
