The Sussex EPE project focused on the Elizabeth House at Parham in West Sussex. Post-doctoral Research Fellow Dr Jayne Kirk, based at the University of Sussex, produced an architectural and social history of the House and its owners, giving great attention to the major restoration undertaken by the architect Victor Heal in the early 20th century. Heal's exhaustive notes, plans and drawings survive in the Parham archive and a major part of the project was to investigate the fabric of the house to test and challenge Heal's assertions about the character of the Elizabethan house any potential medieval predecessor.

The Parham project adopted a multi-disciplinary approach to understand the development of Parham House incorporating geophysical survey, dendrochronology, ground penetrating radar survey, assessment of the historic carpentry, a survey of the wainscoting in the long gallery and an archaeological assessment of building as a whole.
