Since no two archaeological sites are the same, either in the whole or in detail, it is never possible to verify conclusively the results of one excavation by another. (Barker 1977: 12) His approach set limits on the usefulness of excavated evidence, but at the same time it illustrated a conception of fieldwork that was not shared with all his colleagues.
