    Abstract:
    Archaeology is a highly visual discipline, reliant on observation as well as description, and consequently makes extensive use of diagrams, maps, plans, illustrations and photography as well as textual narratives in communicating its interpretations of past material culture. If discourse analysis is to shed light on the construction of archaeological knowledge it therefore should seek to incorporate the visual alongside the textual, but at present discussion of the two modes are largely independent of each other with an emphasis on the text. A case study examines the interrelationships and interdependencies that exist between text and illustrations in archaeological grey literature, and argues that a multimodal approach to knowledge creation is called for which better reflects the different modes and media used in archaeology.
