The Profession

What is Archaeological Illustration & Survey?

Field archaeology is a very visual subject – it is what we see in the soil, in the landscape and in objects that we record and discuss. Archaeological illustration and survey together cover all types of graphic, non verbal communication. Like other forms of communication, it has a ‘language’ of its own, expressed through the use of accepted conventions, which is a powerful means of expressing ideas. Archaeological illustration and survey are central to recording fieldwork, publishing results, presenting analysis and communicating interpretation. Practitioners must combine skill in technology, understanding of the subject matter and a creative approach to communication through graphic means.
