Abstract

Archaeological publications are the only contact many people will have with a project's work. The impression made by these publications, the style in which information is shared and the image they create of a project's work need to be good, efficient and as complete as possible. As the established methodologies of intensive survey become widely applied by an increasing number of regional archaeological projects throughout the Mediterranean, it is apposite to consider the publications produced by them. In this dissertation I study the philosophical background of report writing, the techniques used to present data and the resulting re-presentations of their subjects with particular reference to ten survey projects from around the Mediterranean. No archaeological project can stand alone and so I discuss the possibilities of drawing comparisons between the reports. I also briefly consider and quickly dismiss the possibility of a standardised approach to archaeological report writing.
