Some people have been calling for a national strategy for Welsh archaeology for some time now and it seems that the meeting from which this volume derives has already had a positive effect to that end. These 24 papers that form the Proceedings of the IFA Wales/Cymru Conference, held at Aberystwyth in 2001, reflect the `open forum' debates on issues of research strategies and policy, as well as presenting thematic papers on particular periods and/or approaches to Welsh archaeology. The overall aim is to bring together commercial, curatorial, academic and amateur interests and encourage co-operation and consultation between all parties.

The Shapwick Project, undertaken between 1989-99 is one of the most detailed studies of a single medieval settlement and its landscape. A principal aim of the project was to examine processes of nucleation, a current hot topic in medieval archaeology. This massive volume represents the final report from the project. It contains sections on methodology, on the various surveys undertaken (historical, architectural, archaeological and ecological), on the excavations themselves and on the finds, both material and environmental. The conclusions chart the development of settlement patterns at Shapwick from prehistory to the present day.
