Abstract: 

Archaeological research can profit from methods and ideas taken from theoretical physics and computer science. I shall show how this general statement was tested in a few examples of archaeological relevance. Using these examples, I shall try to draw some conclusions on future prospects, and discuss possible pitfalls in this kind of interdisciplinary research.
