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;
