Evolution and Subterranean hidden depths…To any Investigation

.A rule of thumb for all budding archaeologists is to know the time spent in excavation / survey equates to the time spent writing it up, that is one day for excavation is one day for writing it up.

Problems that have and still hamper archaeological investigation is the amount of data from excavation and survey has not had the appropriate write up or publications. This leaves a backlog of data which has been left unfinished in turn this cannot be used or  utilised by other related investigations.The data becomes inconsistent and cannot tell us anything  leaving too many unanswered questions

Always tie up loose ends and realise that any work that is undertaken can / will  be added to and explored upon progressing other work which can highlight a bigger picture, in turn giving clearer answers
