Archaeological site manual

The MoLAS archaeological site manual is a guide to the compilation of archaeological site records – drawn, written or photographed – in the course of fieldwork. It should enable any archaeologist to undertake most recording and excavation tasks without the need for further reference. The manual is arranged in sections in a logical sequence from simple contexts such as deposits and cuts, through the associated activity of environmental sampling to more complex features such as masonry and timber structures. Further sections deal with specialised aspects of fieldwork, such as skeleton and coffin recording, finds recovery, photography and surveying, and the manual concludes with specifications for the contents of a site archive. This is the third edition of the manual. It is produced by the Museum of London Archaeology Service, which was created in 1991 by the merger of the Department of Greater London Archaeology and the Museum's former Department of Urban Archaeology, who published the original two editions.
