Archaeological Potential of Cave and Fissure Deposits in Limestone

Archaeological Research And Consultancy At The University Of Sheffield: ARCUS
This project undertook as study of the archaeological potential of cave and fissure deposits and assessed current protection to such deposits as afforded through the planning process. The study areas included the carboniferous limestone of the Southern Pennines and the southern end of the Magnesian Limestone in Derbyshire, South Yorkshire and Nottinghamshire. Current practice was assessed for the assessment, evaluation and mitigation of the impacts of quarrying on cave and fissure deposits.

Identification and Quantification of Projects Arising From Aggregates Extraction: Derbyshire, Nottinghamshire and Oxfordshire

Archaeological Research And Consultancy At The University Of Sheffield: ARCUS
A pilot study has been carried out as part of an ALSF commission to assemble a database of known archaeological fieldwork projects on hard and soft aggregates extraction sites in Derbyshire, Nottinghamshire and Oxfordshire. The aim of the project was to identify those sites with incomplete or inadequate levels of dissemination, and to assess the potential of these sites.

Aggregates Extraction and Archaeology Backlogs: North-West Region

This project comprised a desk-based study of aggregate sites the in north-west of England. The study covered the counties of Lancashire, Greater Manchester, Cheshire and Merseyside. The study was undertaken to identify and quantify archaeological projects arising from aggregates extraction which currently have incomplete or inappropriately low levels of dissemination. The study was concerned with the extraction of aggregates from both hard rock (crushed rock) and soft rocks (sand and gravel). The project was funded...

The Virtual Amarna Project

Barry Kemp
The pieces in the Virtual Amarna Museum come from the site of Tell el-Amarna in Egypt, the city built around 1350 BC by Pharaoh Akhenaten, as a place where he could centre his austere view of the cult of the sun, the Aten. The pieces illustrate not Akhenaten's own concerns, but the spiritual interests of the many thousands of people who came to live in the city. Although we can count Akhenaten as a monotheist,...

Society For Medieval Archaeology
The dataset consists of the annual excavation round-up for the journal Medieval Archaeology. The aim is to keep readers and researchers informed of fieldwork and other findings relating to the period c.400-1550 AD on a yearly and up-to-date basis. The format for this particular project is temporary; from 2007 the submitted information is presented in the form of a searchable database.

Wharram Percy Archive

Identifying coastal archaeology using multi-spectral satellite imagery of the intertidal zone

Ole Gron, Helene Burningham, Julie Satchell & Tomas Hunniche
This project is a desk-based assessment to test the value of using multispectral high-resolution data to examine intertidal archaeology and morphology. The project takes advantage of recent advances in remote-sensing technologies and GIS spatial mapping capabilities to identify archaeological features, integrate a wide range of archaeological, morphological and palaeoenvironmental data, and to reconstruct the coastal prehistory of the Solent, on the southern coast of England. The project focuses on the development and assessment of the...
