This paper will generally explore the influence of military procedures and personal experience thereof in 19th and early 20th century British archaeological fieldwork. Aside from tracing this as a practical legacy (survey techniques, the grid and organisation of labour, etc.), it will consider its impact upon notions of ‘disciplining the past’ (e.g. Wheeler) and, particularly, how Pitt Rivers’ constitution of proof arose from his army background (ordnance adjudication and legal prosecution).
