This section details best practice procedures for archaeological archiving throughout all the stages of an archaeological project. The workflow which follows should be recognisable to all those involved in archaeology but the actions and tasks which are described are specific to the creation, compilation, transfer and curation of a stable, consistent, accessible and sustainable archive.
The actions which apply to archiving in each project stage are explained first then the tasks which apply to these principles are set out as bulleted points.

2. Data Gathering

3. Analysis, Reporting and Archive Transfer

4. Care and Curation of the Archive
