  esheetNormal;Environmental Archaeology and Environmental Change in Wales: A ResearchAssessment
For the purposes of this paper environmental archaeology will be considered in its broadest sense, encompassing both those areas of research that are focused explicitly on archaeological issues, and in which a human dimension is central, and those that are essentially palaeoenvironmental but have implications for archaeology.
The paper is confined largely to environmental aspects of archaeological science, although dating techniques are briefly considered because a good chronological framework is as essential for palaeoenvironmental studies as it is for other areas of archaeology, and lipid analysis is referred to as it clearly overlaps with other aspects of palaeoeconomic research and diet.
A wealth of environmental evidence is available to the archaeologist, at least in broad landscape terms, but a more detailed examination of the evidence reveals that there are significant gaps in the distribution of the sites and that the quality of the data is variable.
