Magnetic Moments in the Past

Cathy Batt, Paul Linford & Zoe Outram
Understanding the age of a given site has always played a central role in archaeology. The principal scientific dating technique used within archaeology is radiocarbon dating, but there are many other techniques that offer advantages to the archaeologists in different situations. Archaeomagnetic dating is one such technique that uses the properties of the Earth's magnetic field to produce a date. A project entitled 'Magnetic Moments in the Past' was launched by the University of Bradford...

National Ice Age Network

University Of London Royal Holloway, University Of Birmingham & University Of Leicester
The National Ice Age Network expanded and built upon the success of The Shotton Project, a Midlands Ice Age network, funded by the ALSF in 2003/2004.

These comprised two ditches and two inter-cutting pits. Two Saxon rubbish pits contained material associated with the disposal of both general domestic waste and cess material, and possibly industrial waste; the latter suggested by moderate quantities of slag retrieved from the fills of the pits. Although no dating evidence has...

The Deanery, Chapel Road, Southampton (OASIS ID wessexar1-92410)

The site lies within the south-west of the known extent of the nationally important mid-Saxon settlement of Hamwic. The natural Brickearth sub-strata was cut by a number of pit like features; only two of these were sample excavated and very little dating evidence was recovered. However, both sample excavated features displayed a degree of regularity that suggested that they were shallow pits and were very similar in form to the Mid Saxon pits excavated during...
