Visibility has become in recent years one of the central issues in the development of method and theory in survey archaeology. Prior to 1980, little attention was paid to the question of what was actually visible or not on the surface of the landscape when an archaeologist surveyed a given area of the Mediterranean. In short, the survey archaeologist once lived in a state of innocence. Now this has changed. The paper reviews the author's own experience in Italy which made it necessary to consider the question of visibility. The paper closes with a brief discussion of some of the implications that follow from this change in perspective.
