Abstract:
For 16 main divisions of archaeological science, the individual contributors set out current needs and priorities for the next 5-10 years. The divisions are: for biological and environmental sciences, environmental studies, pollen analysis, plant macrofossils, soils and sediments, vertebrate archaeozoology, invertebrate zooarchaeology, and human remains; for technological analysis and site prospecting, archaeometallurgy, ceramic analysis, lithic analysis, and site prospecting; and for dating, radiocarbon dating, radiocarbon accelerator dating, dendrochronology, and thermoluminescence dating. Contributors are Martin Jones, N D Balaam, R G Scaife, R I Macphail, S Limbrey, Geoff Bailey, Caroline Grigson, KD Thomas, S W Hillson, E Slater, I Freestone, Patricia Phillips, A J Clark, R Switsur, J Gowlett, M G L Baillie, M J Aitken, I K Bailiff, and S G E Bowman. A common thread runs through the document: the need for ensuring continuity of resources, more financial support for training, more funds for innovative research, a reassessment of the means of publication, closer integration of scientific work with field planning, etc.
