Archaeological Excavation

Archaeological Excavation is the systematic recording and removal of layers of soil, deposits, structures and artefacts by a qualified archaeologist.


Post-excavation analysis and publication of the results of the excavation are all integral parts of the process. Full excavation is used as a method of preservation by record.
