Abstract:
The object of this booklet is to consider briefly the present state and future direction of British field research in archaeology, for the Prehistoric and Early Historic periods which may conveniently be taken together to form a first Part of such a work. It will be followed in due course by a second Part, which will cover likewise the later Pre-Conquest, Medieval, and Post-Medieval periods. It is hoped that both as a survey and a policy it will form a convenient starting-point and directive for the resumption of field research now that the war is over; and in particular, that it will be found of use for action in the period of national re-planning and reconstruction now beginning, in which many sites and antiquities throughout the country may require investigation, protection, and excavation for the preserving of their value for the public interest. The work was begun at the request of the Research Committee of the Congress of Archaeological Societies, and has been completed, since the termination of the Congress's existence in 1945, under the auspices of the Council for British Archaeology, with the aid of moneys transmitted by the Congress, at its last meeting, to the Council for this purpose.
