Resource identifiers

Digital Object Identifiers

Digital Object Identifiers (DOIs) are persistent identifiers which can be used to consistently and accurately reference digital objects and/or content. The DOIs provide a way for the ADS resources to be cited in a similar fashion to traditional scholarly materials. More information on DOIs at the ADS can be found on our help page.

Citing this DOI

DOIs should be the last element in a citation irrespective of the format used. The DOI citation should begin with "doi:" in lowercase followed by the DOI with no spaces between the ":" and the DOI.

doi:10.5284/1000332

DOIs can also be cited as a persistent link from another Web page. This is done by appending the DOI Resolver with the DOI. This would look like:

http://dx.doi.org/10.5284/1000332

However, if it is possible it is best to hide the URL in the href property of the <a> tag and have the link text be of the form doi:10.5284/1000332. The HTML for this would look like:

<a href="http://dx.doi.org/10.5284/1000332">doi:10.5284/1000332</a>

Abstract

Title page of report 46

This is the second of three volumes on the archaeology of Hereford. The first part of this volume includes a section on the historical background to the defences and provides a postulated defensive sequence for the city. The detailed reports of excavations, which took place between 1965 and 1976, on and close to the defences, are in the digitised microfiche with summaries in the text. In part 2, the conclusions from ten years of archaeological research in Hereford are presented, the defensive sequence is established, and the origins and growth of the city are discussed.
