I found it so compelling that I read the entire book at one sitting. Publications may be in the form of articles in journals, monographs produced by archaeological contracting companies such as Pre-Construct Archaeology and MOLA, or many other types of book. Organisations such as Crossrail have been particularly keen on producing shorter, accessible publications with their archaeological partners quickly after.
