Introduction

     The site itself constitutes the highest unit of observation in terms of excavations. There is a perceptual view of it, which emerges intuitively from an immediate and direct confrontation with its physical configuration: this I address in this section.
     Then there is a mediated, non-intuitive, view whereby the site is inserted in a frame that overlays, on the physical configuration, specific standards derived from measurable parameters. These are derived primarily from surveying techniques, and then from the application of labels that define specific portions of the whole (zones, areas, units).
