generic feature list[edit]

The idea here is to create a nexus for feature types without straying into specific epoch specialties. so add to kist and create links and pages to go with elements listed or otherwise. My thinking is to tie the generic features into the methodology section via the feature (archaeology) page rather than a archaeological features cat which is not defined for the reader coming into wiki as the meaning of the word feature is not specific to its intended meaning in many articles in archaeology that use it. i wish to delete Category: Archaeological features which is poorly populated by clashing articles eg its not helpful to think of a cropmark as a feature rather than just evidence for them.

I have used the term feature professionally for 20 years and only now realise how fudgable a term it is when trying to define its different meanings in relation to archaeology.. I might go for the term several different but allied concepts" which i saw being used elsewhere round here.
