Calculating Plough-Zone Demographics

Show Summary Details


This chapter provides some illustrations of the potential disparity between plough-zone results and those in a variety of arid-zone projects, where surface preservation of physical features allows better site identification and crucially important additional information on site typologies and functions. The author here draws on his personal involvement in the Kasserine Survey (Tunisia), the UNESCO Libyan Valleys Survey and the Fazzan Project (both in Libya), and the Wadi Faynan Landscape Survey in Jordan.

Keywords: plough-zone surveys; Kasserine Survey; UNESCO Libyan Valleys Survey; Fazzan Project; Wadi Faynan Landscape Survey
