In this paper we propose a Web 2.0 Archaeological Knowledge Management System entitled iAKS. Developed using the forthcoming Adobe AIR (Adobe Integrated Runtime), iAKS is intended to be a flexible data entry, data archiving, and data visualization system appropriate for use in a wide variety of archaeological settings. Ultimately iAKS is designed to leverage the strengths of Adobe AIR and other Web service technologies in order to bypass many of the problems associated traditional field archaeological data management and data interoperability.
