Summary "In the past 30 years archaeological field survey has become central to the practice of Classical Archaeology. During this time, approaches have developed from the systemic collection of artefacts to include the routine deployment of various geophysical and remote sensing techniques. Archaeological Survey and the City reviews the results of such projects and in particular discusses the ways in which the subject might develop in the future, with an emphasis on the integration of different strands of evidence and issues of archaeological interpretation rather than on the technicalities of particular methodologies"-- Page 4 of cover
