Re: Installing the whole set of scientific packages

- debian-science-archaeology
- debian-science-anthropology

I think these are pretty much the same thing too. In the USA you get a degree in anthropology and on the other side of the pond you get a degree in archaeology.

I can see your point, given that they're often collocated in the same departments with the same faculty teaching them. [This does occasionally cause problems: sometimes you find anthro located in sociology departments as well, in smaller institutions (where there is usually no archaeology taught...).]

My suggestion, I suppose, is that debian-science-anthropology is most appropriate.

If someone later comes along and gripes loudly that it is so wrong to be mixing software that studies human social migration with software that is to manage dig sites.... well, they can advocate for change. :)
