Explanation:
The demarcation in caps, and the highlighting in the document at the URL below are mine.

"The eastern and western slopes of the hills in the survey area were very distinct in character, with the eastern slope comprising long relatively shallow slopes (c 45 degree angle), and the western side marked by a much steeper slopes. None of the flint seams outcropped on the eastern slopes, while their presence on the western slopes provided much of the structural form of this side, including a number of overhangs above cliffs. Survey commenced with walking a number of TRANSECTS. Initially this involved two people walking either side of a tape, each counting flints by square meter. A series of these TRANSECTS were undertaken, demonstrating that the density of surface finds was generally very low. TRANSECT survey was followed by collection from scatters that had been identified within the transects. In some areas gridded survey was conducted without picking up artefacts, and then collecting from 4 x 4m squares."

and

"Further fieldwork, developing the programme underway since 1995, was conducted in association with Dr Pierre-Yves Milcent, Universitй de Toulouse 2, and Dr Olivier Buchsenschutz, Ecole normale supйrieure, Paris, around Bourges in central France during August and September. Since the later nineteenth century, evidence has been accumulating to suggest that the site, Avaricum of the Bituriges in the first century BC, was also a significant node in the settlement pattern of west-central Europe at the Hallstatt/La Tиne transition. Initially, this evidence consisted principally of objects from funerary contexts, supplemented by stray finds, some from the wetland adjacent to the rivers Auron and Yиvre which define the promontory on which Avaricum was later centred. Over a dozen ETRUSCAN metal items have been recovered from the vicinity. During 2000, it proved possible to examine two sites relevant to the status of the site in the fifth century BC, with a team drawn from the participating universities and the Service archйologique municipal of the ville de Bourges, and with financial support primarily from the Mairie de Bourges and the Service rйgional de l'Archйologie."
