HALL, A.R. and KENWARD, H.K. (2006) Development-driven archaeology: bane or boon for bioarchaeology? Oxford Journal of Archaeology, 25 (3). pp. 213-224. ISSN 0262-5253
Summary. Through much of the world there is a move towards policies of in situ preservation of the buried archaeological heritage, typically supported by small-scale investigative excavations (often called 'evaluations'). In this review we attempt to judge the success of these policies in England and Wales, from the standpoint of bioarchaeology. We consider particularly the value of data for plant and insect macrofossils from trial excavations associated with development (a) in producing information which contributes towards research agendas, and (b) as a guide to the preservational condition of organic archaeological deposits.
