The Goals of Archaeological Survey
It is easy to think of examples of surveys that failed to detect the sites of greatest interest, that provided biased estimates of a site’s date or importance, or that yielded none of the contextual information or economic evidence needed to investigate a particular research problem. Most failures of archaeological survey, however, are due to inappropriate survey design and especially to failure to tailor that design to the survey’s objectives.
