Abstract and Keywords

Key trends in methodological practice in later medieval archaeology in Britain largely follow those seen elsewhere in the discipline of archaeology. This chapter considers the key field techniques used in the study of later medieval archaeology. This includes traditional techniques such as archaeological excavation and survey, as well as more recent innovations such as the analysis of LiDAR data. Consideration is also given to how methodological practice has been influenced by changing theoretical viewpoints within the discipline, as well as pragmatic constraints and opportunities in undertaking archaeological research in Britain in the late twentieth and early twenty-first centuries.

Keywords: archaeological excavation, field survey, earthwork, aerial, LiDAR, geophysics, scientific archaeology
