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...

The Origin and Spread of Stock-Keeping in the Near East and Europe

James Conolly (2012)
Publisher: Archaeology Data Service
In western Eurasia the earliest evidence for domestic livestock is dated to c.10,000 cal BP. Farming then spread westwards through Europe over the subsequent millennia, arriving in the far west and north of the continent by c.6,000 cal BP. For decades there have been major debates as to the nature of this spread, with many basic questions still remaining largely unanswered. The objective of this major research project, which was funded for four years by the AHRC from January 2007, was to addr...

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 ...

A Viking-age cemetery at Cumwhitton, Cumbria.

Oxford Archaeology (North); Historic England (2015)
Publisher: Archaeology Data Service
In March 2004, a Cumbrian metal detectorist was given permission to examine farmland on the western edge of Cumwhitton (NY 503 525), a small village in the Eden Valley, south-east of Carlisle. There he found an object in the ploughsoil which was subsequently identified as a Viking oval brooch of ninth- or tenth-century date. These are almost always found in pairs, and in a burial context. Peter Adams therefore returned to the site and did indeed find a second brooch. Given the rarity of these...

AustArch: A Database of 14C and Luminescence Ages from Archaeological Sites in Australia

Williams, Alan; Ulm, Sean (2014)
Publisher: Archaeology Data Service
The AustArch dataset consists of 5,044 radiocarbon determinations from 1,748 archaeological sites across Australia. The dataset also contains a further 478 non-radiocarbon ages. The dataset was compiled and published sequentially by region starting initially with Queensland (Ulm and Reid 2000), the arid zone (Williams et al. 2008b), the top end (Williams and Smith, 2012) and finally the southern latitudes and Tasmania (Williams and Smith, 2013) . The dataset includes all radiocarbon and non-r...

Conflict in the Pre-industrial Landscape

Glenn Foard; Tracey Partida (2011)
Publisher: Archaeology Data Service
This project set out to ascertain how material evidence for military action and the landscape in which it took place can be better integrated into the investigation and management of the UK's historic environment. The project was planned in two stages. Phase One, upon which this volume reports, was designed as a resource assessment focussing primarily upon battles, involving the preparation of a gazetteer, an assessment of condition and potential with more detailed field examination of a numb...

C A I French (2007)
Publisher: Archaeology Data Service
Soil erosion, agricultural terracing and site formation is an archive resulting from the analyses undertaken on soils and sediments from a terraced slope at an Early Bronze Age site on the Aegean island of Amorgos. The archive contains text documents in html format and images illustrating the location of the research and photomicrographs of the various soil structures.

Isles of Scilly Historic Environment Research Framework

Cornwall Council (2013)
Publisher: Archaeology Data Service
The project comprises the first two stages of the Scilly Historic Environment Research Framework (SHERF), the Resource Assessment and Research Agenda.. Its aim is to provide a structure in which to make decisions about future historic environment research. It is part of an English Heritage initiative to prepare a series of research frameworks for the whole country. The Resource Assessment is a comprehensive overview of the Islands from the Palaeolithic to the present day, which aims to provid...

The Rural Settlement of Roman Britain: an online resource

Allen, Martyn; Brindle, Tom; Smith, Alex; Richards, Julian D; Evans, Tim; Holbrook, Neil; Fulford, Michael; Blick, Nathan (2015)
Publisher: Archaeology Data Service
This resource brings together the excavated evidence for the rural settlement of Roman Britain with the over-arching aim to inform a comprehensive reassessment of the countryside of Roman Britain. It includes both traditionally published reports and 'grey literature' reports from developer-funded excavations since 1990. The project arose from pilot projects undertaken by Cotswold Archaeology and funded by English Heritage and it began in 2012. It is funded by grants from the Leverhulme Trust ...
