The Netherlands is one of the few countries in Europe where predictive models, used to predict archaeological site location in order to guide future developments in the modern landscape, play an important role in cultural heritage management. While many scholars consider the application of predictive models for this purpose highly controversial, the contributors to this volume bring together their insights into strategic research in developing new methods for predictive modelling and applied, interdisciplinary 'action research' focusing on how the models are, or should be, used by stakeholders in cultural heritage management in the Netherlands.
