Metalworking evidence and archaeological project management
Project management techniques are widely used to plan and monitor the progress of archaeological projects. Project management makes the aims, objectives, methods, timetable, risks and outcomes explicit. It is common to divide a project into a series of stages where the relevant aspects of the project can be reviewed and the project as a whole re-focused if necessary. Archaeological evidence for metallurgical activities is routinely encountered and effective archaeological project management needs to take this into account.
