University of Birmingham, Ironbridge Institute (2009) Clee Hills Project, Shropshire [data-set]. York: Archaeology Data Service [distributor] https://doi.org/10.5284/1000028
The Clee Hills, within the AONB of the Shropshire Hills in the south of the county, form a prominent and enduring element within the landscape yet are relatively little known outside of the region. This project sought to survey and characterise all evidence for human activity on the Clee hills, formulate a management strategy that would involve all who lived, worked and used the hills and provide an outline interpretation of the visible archaeological remains.
The defined area comprises a c.24 sq. km square block defined by grid coordinates SO 58 79 and SO 64 79, centred on the current Hanson Plc quarry. This includes all the known areas of industrial activity on the hill. Brown Clee, which lies some miles to the north, across the Ludlow anticline, is excluded from the defined area.
