The progress of archaeology in Britain, as elsewhere, depends on excavation. This is a commonplace; but a more leisurely approach to that final arbitrament than is usually adopted would, we think, be advantageous.

The following account of a field survey of a limited area in Glamorgan is a practical expression of this point of view.
