Editors Note This practical volume, the first book in the Manuals in Archaeological Method, Theory and Technique Series, examines in detail the factors that affect archaeological detectability in surveys whose methods range from visual to remote sensing in land, underwater, and intertidal zones - furnishing a comprehensive treatment of prospection, parameter estimation, model building, and detection of spatial structure.Emphasizing careful survey design, including mathematical methods for optimizing the size and arrangement of observation units, Archaeological Survey provides a wealth of new material as well as new interpretations on standard techniques. This important resource: -Presents both sampling theory and optimization theory; -Explicates fieldwalking, remote sensing and subsurface testing among other techniques; -Demonstrates how to evaluate survey results to avoid biased estimates and avoid the risk of missed targets; -Explains Bayesian optimal allocation of effort and the Game Theory approach; -Discusses a host of issues related to Cultural Resource Management.
