Abstract Archaeological Predictive Models (APMs) represent an important evolution of spatial integrated databases of archaeological records. Before the development and the analysis of a predictive model, numerous other steps are required in order to integrate the raw data sets into functional archaeological systems. Our aim is to assess the evolution of archaeological data sets into APMs and to reconsider the real value of such attempts for the Romanian Heritage Protection or for scientific purposes. We will consider, as well, certain aspects regarding the deductive/inductive nature of the APMs. In our perspective, there are a few ways APMs could be improved: the use of more variables, as well as the understanding both of the analytical nature of data sets and of the real nature of archaeological data sets.
