Aperçu du texte

Currently in the Netherlands, archaeological data about a surveyed site is used fairly linearly in practice. The process usually starts with a desktop study, followed by augering or geophysics and finally trial trenches or excavation. Using ARCHIS (a nation-wide archaeological information system in the Netherlands), the excavator checks for any prior archaeological investigations in this area and will use this information to choose where to excavate within the research area. Trenches are likely to be dug in places where the geophysical report shows a possible archaeological feature. However, feedback on data interpretation seldom reaches the geophysicists after the excavation is completed. This is a serious drawback because without information evaluating the interpretation of geophysical data in specific cases, the geophysicist cannot learn to identify the flaws in his interpretation and this will affect the accuracy of his predictions in the future. Secondly, earlier research is no...
