These electronic documents are all in Portable Document Format (.pdf) and can be read using Adobe AcrobatTM Reader. This software is freely available and free to use. Within Acrobat there is a useful help system and you are encouraged to learn its main functions so as to get the best out of the powerful navigation system which allows you to go to and from cross-references (e.g. illustrations).
Acrobat Reader can be obtained from http://www.adobe.com/products/acrobat/readstep2.html.
To set Acrobat Reader to view documents
a page at a time and download the whole file in background, do the following.
Under Acrobat's 'File' menu choose 'Preferences' then 'General', and then
enable 'Allow background download of entire file'. Note that page-at-a-time
only works if the web server supports 'byte-serving'. The files are quite
large (between 1.5 & 3.5mb) so will take time to download. If you want
access to them regularly and or to all reports, then it is better to order
The layout of the Floortile ,Pottery and 1997 Excavation reports is in A4 portrait format because the original intention was to produce these for hard-copy output only. The Small Finds and Human Bone reports were designed in landscape format primarily for viewing on screen. All reports can be printed from within Acrobat Reader.
As well as the .pdf files, the parent wordprocessed files in RTF format as well at the excavation database, is available on CD. Copies of higher resolution drawings and photographs from the Small Finds and Human Bone reports are available in sub-directories of the CD. If you are viewing this over the World Wide Web and you want to purchase a copy of the CD, contact Dyfed Archaeological Trust at email@example.com. Although all reports are the copyright of Dyfed Archaeological Trust, they can be copied for non-profit-making purposes.
