For an archaeological project to truly benefit from geoarchaeological advice it is important that a visit be made by a geoarchaeologist. Only in the field are the extensive stratigraphic exposures, necessary to infer formation and modification processes, visible. Also, it is only in the field that a geoarchaeologist can enter into a dialogue with the archaeologists actually excavating/investigating a site.
An ARCA geoarchaeologist visiting a site will: • discuss with site staff the archaeological problems that can be resolved by using geoarchaeological approaches; • describe relevant site stratigraphy using standard geological terminology and interpret that stratigraphy in terms of its genesisand subsequent modification;
