assessment of potential

Quick Reference


In the Management of Archaeological Projects (MAP2), assessment is a critical step be‐tween fieldwork and post‐fieldwork analysis. It involves reviewing finds, samples, records, and datasets produced during a fieldwork programme in order to evaluate their potential contribution to archaeo‐ logical knowledge and define any further study necessary. The result of an assessment will be an assessment report and an updated research design.

Subjects: Archaeology.
