May 2016... West Midlands Regional Research Framework

The aims of the West Midlands Regional Research Framework are to provide a viable, realistic and effective academic basis for undertaking archaeological intervention, either as a result of developer-funded operations or to underpin future research designs. The Resource Audit identifies the nature and extent of the known database and the Research Assessment evaluates strengths, weaknesses and biases in the record. The outcome will enable curators to integrate appropriate research strategies within their specifications and ensure that contractors tender and operate in full awareness of local designs. Equally, it will inform museum curators, education officers and university staff and students with regard to the research parameters of the region.
