The Butser Ancient Farm Research Project

Author(s): Peter J. Reynolds

Year: 1976


Experimental archaeology can be sensibly claimed to be fundamental to the progress of archaeological thought and practice. Especially is this so with relation to prehistory and excation technique. In fact, experimenta have been conducted for as long as archaeology has bee npreactised but it is only relatviely recently that the experiemtns have been subjected to rigorouse scientific controls. as a general description experimental archaeology is an umbrella term likst geography fo even archaeolgy itself. It embraces quite properly activities and studies ranging from mycology to model-building, cultural anthropology to themodynamics.
