The course examines and analyzes the process of excavation as a problem of research design and method, from both intellectural and organizational aspects. Archaeological research design is stressed, from excavation planning through data retrieval, storage, processing, integration and interpretation, to presentation. Guest lecturers, who present critical evaluations of "case studies" are a regular feature. Prerequisite: excavation experience.
