Publisher: Archaeology Data Service
The Atlas of Rural Settlement in England GIS comprises the results of two projects based on Brian K Roberts and Stuart Wrathmell's An Atlas of Rural Settlement in England (2000). The aim of the data conversion project was to enable the key maps of rural settlement and terrain presented in the printed Atlas to be used more effectively than before in research on landscape and settlement in England, as well as in the management of the historic environment. The maps printed in the Atlas were ...

The Archaeological Potential of Secondary Contexts

Robert Hosfield; Phil Toms; Jenni Chambers (2007)
Publisher: Archaeology Data Service
The project assesses the Palaeolithic stone tool assemblages recovered from the flood deposits of Middle and Late Pleistocene (787-11,000 BP) rivers in the UK (described as archaeological secondary contexts). The stone tool assemblages are distributed across southern Britain, while Pleistocene flood (fluvial) deposits are distributed throughout the UK. The stone tool assembalges and their associated fluvail deposits vary in age from at least 700,000 years old to the end of the Paleolithic per...

Spatial and Chronological Patterns in the Neolithisation of Europe

Shennan, Stephen J.; James Steele (2006)

The Spatial and Chronological Patterns in the Neolithisation of Europe project is a spatial database of radiocarbon dates for the later Mesolithic and early Neolithic of Europe. There is also information concerning the contexts of the dates, the material dated and economic and cultural associations. This database may be searched on-line at the Archaeology Data Service.

A Review of Animal Bone Evidence from Central England

Umberto Albarella; Tessa Pirnie (2008)
Publisher: Archaeology Data Service
The aim of this project was to produce a review of the animal bone evidence from Central England from Mesolithic to Modern times. The dataset collected for this purpose consists of details gleaned from excavation reports (or specialist bone reports), concerning vertebrate remains (of fishes, amphibians, reptiles, birds and mammals) found primarily on archaeological sites. These details include the full bibliographic reference, summary descriptions of each site (for instance, its type, locatio...

Newport Medieval Ship

The main aims of the Newport Medieval Ship Project are to document, analyse and describe this 15th-century vessel, and its associated artefacts and environmental finds. This archive comprises data gathered on site and during the post-excavation analysis phase. Digital documentation techniques, including contact digitising, laser scanning, digital photography and digital solid modelling have been utilised in order to create a detailed, accurate and versatile data set that lends itself to digit...

Roman brooches in Britain: a technological and typological study based on the Richborough collection

Justine Bayley; Sarnia Butcher (2007)
Publisher: Archaeology Data Service
In the 1970s a study was carried out of 445 extant brooches from Richborough, both by the traditional typological method and by scientific methods which had not so far been applied systematically to material of this type. The early work indicated that there were significant correlations between typology, alloy composition and techniques of decoration. The decision was taken to extend the survey to brooches from other sites with the result that some 3500 brooches have been analysed and examine...

Glastonbury Abbey: Archaeological Archive Project

Trustees of Glastonbury Abbey; University of Reading (2014)
Publisher: Archaeology Data Service
Glastonbury Abbey is crucial to understanding British monasticism, and through its links with the Arthurian legends, it holds a special place in English popular culture. The site was purchased by the Church of England in 1907, and thirty-four seasons of excavation took place in the years 1908 to 1979 - but the results have remained unpublished. A project funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council (2009-2012) is analysing the archive of excavations that were undertaken by iconic figure...

ALSF Dissemination: Benchmark Report Theme 4C. Outreach: The Sands of time, Aggregates and the public

English Heritage; Julian Richards (2010)
Publisher: Archaeology Data Service
The 'Sands of Time' report reviews the impact that Aggregates Levy Sustainability Fund (ALSF) outreach projects have had in explaining archaeology, the historic environment and aggregate extraction to the widest possible audiences. In the absence of formal standards against which outcomes can be measured, the report provides an overview of current practice through a series of case studies. A guide to good practice in outreach is then offered as is an index of outreach resources, both printed ...
