The importance of an archaeological discovery lies not only in the nature of the discovery itself but depends heavily on the documentation carried out on site as well as the post-excavation processes and analysis, and respective reporting. Be it research-led or development-led, the Superintendence of Cultural Heritage always requires that documentation is kept to the highest of standards to facilitate publication of results. An executive summary of the more salient discoveries is published in the Superintendence’s annual report. In other instances, when resources permit to do so, and particularly in the cases involving collaboration with third parties, the Superintendence publishes technical reports for individual sites, some of which may also be included in peer reviewed journals.
