The figures indicate how the projects (1-6) of the Archaeology Knowledge Kit programme relate to different parts of the cycle: 1. Predictions in Layers; 2. Mapping Disturbances; 3. Maps in Abundance; 4. Prospection Best Practice; 5. National Archaeological Research Agenda 2.0; 6. Valletta Harvest (Lauwerier 2017, 15)

Figure 3: Schematic cross-section of the Netherlands, from the North Sea coast to the German border, indicating the depth at which remains from different periods are present

Figure 5: Reconstruction map of the vegetation in the Late Middle Ages, around AD 1500 in the region Twente, the Netherlands. Historical sources clearly demonstrate that the landscape, which had become very open due to intensive and prolonged human land-use, was dotted with numerous farmsteads (after Van Beek et al. 2017, 69)
