Mucking - Prehistoric and Roman

Intensively excavated between 1965 and 1978, the Mucking, Essex campaigns led to open-area excavations across 18ha, and the site was renowned in its time as the largest excavation to date in Europe. What it revealed was a dense, multi-period landscape palimpsest ranging from Neolithic to Medieval times, but primarily involving later Bronze and Iron Age, Roman and Saxon settlement; in total, more than 44,000 features were excavated. Notable among these were over a thousand burials...

It is thought to have fallen in a storm and one side was defaced and re-carved with a memorial in the 17th century, leaving the fragments of the Pictish carving and the lower portion in-situ. Many thousands of carved...

The Anglo-Saxon Kent Electronic Database (ASKED) is a collaboratively built research tool, developed to facilitate the doctoral research of two students of the UCL Institute of Archaeology: Stuart Brookes, investigating state formation in Anglo-Saxon East Kent, and Sue Harrington, examining aspects of gender and craft production in early Anglo-Saxon England with particular reference to the early kingdom of Kent. The aim of ASKED was to enumerate all those individuals within eastern Kent for the period...

Unlocking the Past: Archaeology from Aggregates in Worcestershire

This project was undertaken by Worcestershire Historic Environment and Archaeology Service (WHEAS) and funded by English Heritage through the Aggregates Levy Sustainability Fund programme. Local group and museum collections from aggregate production areas of south Worcestershire were assessed as part of a project designed to 'unlock' their potential. Many of these had never been studied previously, while others warranted re-consideration in the light of limitations of previous analysis and/or advances in archaeological knowledge and techniques...

Refining Areas of Maritime Archaeological Potential (AMAPs) for Shipwrecks

In May 2007, English Heritage commissioned Bournemouth University to undertake a project entitled Refining Areas of Maritime Archaeological Potential for Shipwrecks - AMAP1 funded by the Aggregate Levy Sustainability Fund (ALSF). The aim of the project is to undertake quantitative spatial analysis of shipwreck data using GIS to compare typologised wreck scatters to environmental, historical and hydrographic datasets in order to identify biases in the data and refine areas identified as AMAPs during the Navigational...

Visual Repertoire, Focusing Activity and the 'Value of Heritage': Using the 'mental library of views' to evoke local place-identity, Britain and Europe: PhD Thesis, Lancaster University (2002)

Jonathan Kenny
Visual Repertoire, Focusing Activity and the 'Value of Heritage' investigates people's understanding of 'heritage' buildings and structures in the landscape and the part these structures play in defining a sense of identity. It is suggested that 'heritage' has multiple meaning and multiple natures and can remain constant as a nationalist flag in the landscape, or remain unnoticed and banal for years but become contested and politicised at the slightest change in social context. This resource...

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

& Julian Richards
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,...

Three dimensional modeling of Scottish Early Medieval Sculpted Stones: PhD Thesis, University of Glasgow (2003)

Stuart Jeffrey
A Ph.D thesis submitted to the University of Glasgow which evaluates the available technologies allowing digital three dimensional records of archaeological material to be generated and considers how to best utilise the new opportunities for interactive exploration, reconstruction and recontextualisation of Early Medieval sculpted stones. These new technological approaches are examined in the context of existing recording techniques as well as being examined with specific reference to the practical difficulties likely to arise given the...

Excavations at the Viking Barrow Cemetery at Heath Wood, Ingleby, Derbyshire, 1998-2000

Julian D Richards
The cemetery at Heath Wood, Ingleby, Derbyshire is the only known Scandinavian cremation cemetery in the British Isles. It comprises 59 barrows, of which about one-third have been excavated on previous occasions, although earlier excavators concluded that some were empty cenotaph mounds. From 1998-2000 three barrows were examined. These investigations suggested that each of the barrows contained a burial, although not all contained evidence of a pyre. This digital archive consists of a small number...

Trent Valley 2002: Trent Valley GeoArchaeology bibliographic database
