Referring to recent surveys by the staff of the Royal Commission on the Historical Monuments of England and their colleagues, Bowden (an archaeological field investigator and head of the Swindon field team) dispels the myths that survey is too complex and difficult, or that it is only a second-best to excavation. The 12 articles and six case studies show how a range of surveying techniques, both modern and traditional, can be applied to archaeological recording, analysis and research, thus leading to new insights into the remains found in the countryside. Generously illustrated with color and b&w photographs and diagrams. Distributed by Arcadia Publishing. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
