 Archaeological field survey - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Archaeological field survey is the methodological process by which archaeologists (often landscape archaeologists) collect information about the location, distribution and organisation of past human cultures across a large area (e.g.
Surveys can be a practical way to decide whether or not to carry out an excavation (as a way of recording the basic details of a possible site) and may also be ends in themselves, as they produce important information about past human activities in a regional context.
Extensive survey, on the other hand, is characterised by a low-resolution approach in which (e.g.) only samples of a larger study area (often in excess of several sq km) are visited.

 Charter for the Archaeological Heritage
Other elements of the archaeological heritage constitute part of the living traditions of indigenous peoples, and for such sites and monuments the participation of local cultural groups is essential for their protection and preservation.
The archaeological heritage is common to all human society and it should therefore be the duty of every country to ensure that adequate funds are available for its protection.
The overall objective of archaeological heritage management should be the preservation of monuments and sites in situ, including proper long-term conservation and curation of all related records and collections etc. Any transfer of elements of the heritage to new locations represents a violation of the principle of preserving the heritage in its original context.

 Interactive Dig Sagalassos 2003 - Survey
Surveys and excavations at Sagalassos have produced within the city many iron smelting and working slags within the city, especially in the southwest.
The previous three seasons taught us that surveying in a too detailed way (with survey members only two meters apart) is time-consuming and the labour input is not in balance with the results obtained.
Therefore, in 2002 a pottery survey was carried out in the ancient territory of Sagalassos on some sites we surveyed in 1993-1997 that had a high potential for yielding material from the missing periods, especially early (pre-Hellenistic, but post-prehistoric) or very late (post-Early Byzantine) finds.
