This project was designed to examine Lower Palaeolithic technology and raw material and to use the findings to discuss aspects of population ecology during the period. The time range is from 1.5Myr to 300Kyr and includes material from Africa, Europe and the Near East. The database contains 10668 digitised images of 3556 bifaces, as well as information on provenience, raw material and standard measurements.

November 2016: Archaeological Evaluation of the Anglo-Saxon and Viking site at Torksey, Lincolnshire

The aim of the Torksey evaluation was to complete a catalogue of the numismatic and metalwork evidence and to undertake an archaeological assessment using field-walking, metal-detector survey and geophysics, in order to understand the extent and development of the landscape and the Viking camp. Our project has revealed the large scale of the area occupied (some 55 hectares) and the huge amount of... more

The aim of the Torksey evaluation was to complete a catalogue of the numismatic and metalwork evidence and to undertake an archaeological assessment using field-walking, metal-detector survey and geophysics, in order to understand the extent and development of the landscape and the Viking camp. Our project has revealed the large scale of the area occupied (some 55 hectares) and the huge amount of artefactual material that was lost or discarded over a single winter, providing evidence for a wide range of activities, including exchange, metal processing and craft working.

October 2016: Torpel Manor Research Project

Torpel Manor Field is home to an important and visually impressive series of medieval and later earthworks, preserved by English Heritage as a Scheduled Ancient Monument. As such, the site is well-known locally, but, until recently, its character, context and development were poorly understood, as little archaeological work had been undertaken. The aim of this project was to address this issue an... more

Torpel Manor Field is home to an important and visually impressive series of medieval and later earthworks, preserved by English Heritage as a Scheduled Ancient Monument. As such, the site is well-known locally, but, until recently, its character, context and development were poorly understood, as little archaeological work had been undertaken. The aim of this project was to address this issue and, through a combination of non-invasive survey and archival work, to characterise the social and physical landscape of the site, which lies in an area of considerable archaeological interest.

September 2016: 3D Recording Las Cuevas Project

The data collected during the '3D Recording Las Cuevas Project' come from the site of Las Cuevas, located in the Chiquibul Reserve in western Belize, Central America. The data collection was possible in the framework of the Las Cuevas Archaeological Reconnaissance (LCAR) Project directed by Professor Holley Moyes (University of California, Merced).

September 2016: Cottam B: an Anglian and Anglo-Scandinavian settlement in East Yorkshire

Excavation of the Anglian and Anglo-Scandinavian settlement at Burrow House Farm, Cottam, East Yorkshire from 1993-95 was one of the first excavations undertaken of a "productive site", so-called because of the large quantities of early medieval metalwork produced by metal detecting. It also provided an important demonstration of the effects of the re-organisation of land ownership following the Scandinavian settlement of Northumbria. Excavation demonstrated that the abandonment of an Anglo-Saxon "Butterwick" type enclosure in the late 9th century was closely followed by the construction of the new Anglo-Scandinavian farmstead some 100m to the north, reinforcing a trend seen in the horizontal stratigraphy of dated metalwork derived from metal-detecting. The excavation and associated fieldwork were published in the Archaeological Journal 156 (1999), and via an experiment in e-publication in Internet Archaeology 10. The associated digital archive is available from the ADS as 10.5284/1000339, and includes the database of metal-detected finds as then known.
