In January 1979 a conference on 'Environmental archaeology in the urban context' was held, under the auspices of the CBA, at the University of York. The participants included workers in a wide range of disciplines related to environmental archaeology and the emphasis was very much towards practical and theoretical problems, both archaeological and scientific.
During the course of the conference, it was impossible to avoid the impression of a subject largely in its infancy or, in some respects, yet unborn. Not only have the many problems of interpreting results to be faced, but also those of collecting samples which are suitable by being representative of the material from which they are taken and by being amenable to statistical analyses. Few of us working in the field have yet faced the true nature of the `sample' generally examined, and the concept of the statistically designed `experiment' has barely impinged upon urban environmental archaeology. With the present emphasis on rescue archaeology, it is often impossible for the environmentalist to escape the strictures of providing a service for archaeologists, rather than being one kind of archaeologist working together with others. It is to be hoped that all those who attended the conference, and others who read these papers, will be provoked into addressing at least some of these problems.
