Description

Various considerations come into play prior to the onset of an archaeological project. Different projects have different approaches as to where to dig and why to dig a certain site or area. Clearly, today excavations should be based on research goals and when a scholar plans his or her project it should also be decided where within the specific site they should dig. This decision is also dependent on the archaeologist’s research goals and should be based on data collected before the excavation begin.
