Abstract The introduction of the concept of the Archaeological Information System (AIS) made it possible to propose the existence of an integrated generic applicative architecture, computerizing the functions of archaeological practice (Djindjian 1993). It also allowed us to rationalize the software architecture of the AIS, by limiting the amount of useful software for the archaeologists and by simplifying the interfaces between products. The following step, proposed here, is urbanizing the AIS, by defining precisely all the business processes of archaeological research and management, defining an organization of an archaeological professionalization and a more rational and interchanging realization of the AIS applicative and software architecture. Business processes are not the only processes encountered in archaeology. There are also: the processes of the archaeological method, which allow us to control the links between the recorded archaeological data and the target data of the society to be reconstituted; the systemic processes which are running the operations of the societies which the archaeologist is trying to reconstitute: technical systems, economical systems, culture change, etc. The progressive development of the process approach, will constitute a significant evolution in archaeology, not only for the archaeologist business and archaeological methods, but also for the systemic reconstitution capabilities of past societies.
