Meetings such as 'Yorkshire Archaeological Framework Forum Conference' held at Ripon in 1998 provide a good opportunity to reflect on the research carried out in a particular region in the past and present, and in suggesting a direction for future agendas. This volume presents 23 papers including both period-based and thematic studies that reflect the major research projects being carried out in Yorkshire. Some authors identify trends and biases in fieldwork, excavation and research and suggest how these could or should be overcome in the future. The contributors include independent consultants and researchers as well as representatives from major institutions and university departments. Summaries in English, French and German.
