The London Charter and the Seville Principles as sources of requirements for e-archaeology systems development purposes

Juan M. Carrillo Gea, Ambrosio Toval, José L. Fernández Alemán, Joaquín Nicolás, Mariano Flores Gutiérrez


Requirements engineering (RE) is a discipline of critical importance in software development. This paper provides a process and a set of software artefacts to help in the production of e-archaeology systems with emphasis on requirements reuse and standards. In particular, two important guidelines in the field of earchaeology, the London Charter and the Principles of Seville, have been shown as two sources of requirements to be considered as a starting point for developing this type of systems.
