All archaeological writing can be placed in two categories: that which reports on or interprets archaeological discoveries and that which proposes the ways and means by which new discoveries can be made or interpreted.

They are useful and instructive because they address common problems from the world of real archaeology and purpose real solutions for them that have proven successful through trial and error.
