Chapter: 2. Field Survey Calibration: a Contribution

DOI: 10.1558/equinox.24771


This paper approaches the problem of variation in the amount of archaeological material which archaeologists record in different periods. It uses quantified data from two excavations to show their potential for calibrating the results of field survey work. The importance of collecting further information about the quantities of material present on excavations cannot be over-stressed.
