An indispensable handbook for any student or amateur involved in archaeological excavation or fieldwork, this companion volume to Shopland's Archaeological Finds: a Guide to Identification first explains the depositional process and then provides guidelines for the three main steps of excavation, processing and storing. Particular attention is paid to how materials - dealt with alphabetically, from alabaster to wood - are best treated, and there are chapters devoted to documenting and illustrating finds.
