Description

The significance of the PEF in the early archaeological investigation of the Levant is much appreciated and well-studied. Yet, it is rarely acknowledged that PEF played a key-role in setting the standards of the organization and recording of archaeological excavation that went far beyond the antiquarian tradition, and serve archaeologists till today. In this study, I analysed architectural drafting and surveying methods, used for the first PEF projects, and have tried to reconstruct the process of formation of archaeological draughtsmanship in the Levant.
