The aim of SASSA is to provide support and training for curators and field archaeologists on the application of soil science techniques to archaeological questions. When complete SASSA will provide:

- Support for archaeologists in the field with recording and interpreting archaeological soils and sediments.

- Guidance on appropriate field and laboratory analytical techniques relevant to answering archaeological questions.

- Examples of the archaeological questions that soil analysis can contribute to, illustrated by case studies.

- A background tutorial on soil concepts and geoarchaeology.

- A glossary of soil terms.
