The paper concerns the existence of, and value, of 'true negative' archaeological evidence. Recognition of this leads to reflection on why we find (or don't find) things. This in turn generates questions concerning whether archaeologists need to be more explicit about, and reflect more on, the 'observational methods' they use to gather evidence.

All welcome- this seminar is free to attend but advance booking is required.
