24th Annual Meeting of the European Association of Archaeologists "Reflecting futures" - Session #778
Theories and methods in archaeological sciences


In every country worldwide commercial practitioners of field archaeology be it urban, rural or a mixture believe that their methodology is the best or is it just the minimum required to satisfy the planning or environmental issues raised in a development or rescue scenario. Obviously, there are different planning and environmental legal regimes in each member country of this association as well as a multitude of funding issues.
This session is designed to examine the different aspects of commercial field archaeology as practiced in each of this association member states. It aims to explore the different skill sets required to be a commercial archaeologist in the different jurisdictions, and the culture shock involved in practicing archaeology in a way that is alien to the way taught in your home country, It aims to investigate how we can learn from each other by having our methodologies presented to a pan European audience.
The call is for oral presentations of 15 minutes maximum duration on the methodologies of commercial archaeology as practiced in their country, covering such topics as excavation, recording, photography, finds processing, archiving and methodologies such as single and multi context excavation and the use of systems such as the Harris Matrix.


Main organiser:
Geoarchaeologist Colin Forrestal (Spain)
