Introduction

The Bedfordshire Aggregates Archaeological Resource Assessment was commissioned in 2009 by English Heritage through the Aggregates Levy Sustainability Fund (ALSF), which was introduced in 2002 to attend to matters arising from the extraction of aggregates. The project has been logged by English Heritage as RaSMIS number 5759.

The project focuses on the historic county of Bedfordshire, comprising the administrative areas that following the local government re-organisation in April 2009 are covered by Bedford Borough Council, Central Bedfordshire Council and Luton Borough Council. The project was awarded to Bedfordshire County Council and has been completed by the Archaeology Team of Central Bedfordshire Council with the consent of and on behalf of the other authorities.

The aim of this project is to improve knowledge of the archaeological resource of the aggregate producing areas of the historic county of Bedfordshire; thereby providing the appropriate tools to facilitate decisions regarding strategic planning, management and preservation of archaeological sites and historic landscapes within those areas. It will also increase public, industry and other stakeholders' awareness of the archaeology and historic landscapes within the aggregate areas.
