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.
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.
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:
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:10.5284/1000027. The HTML for this would look like:

The Palaeolithic Rivers of Southwest Britain project synthesises the archaeological evidence for the Lower and Middle Palaeolithic occupation of south-west Britain (c. 500,000 - 40,000 BP), with a principal focus upon the archaeological and geological potential of the region's Middle Pleistocene fluvial environments. South-west Britain was defined as the region west of the headwaters of the Rivers Frome and Piddle and south-west of the River Avon.
The digital archive currently consists of the following resources:
Selected artefact images are included, with the kind permissions of the respective museums (see the individual image captions for full details). Individual images can be cross-referenced to the Artefacts database. The artefacts included here are currently held by the following museums:
The project's archaeological databases, documenting the south-west region's Lower and Middle Palaeolithic findspots (after the Southern Rivers Palaeolithic Project: Wessex Archaeology 1993*) and artefacts are included.
In addition to the final report and other documents and images contained within the digital archive the Palaeolithic Rivers of Southwest Britain project also produced the following outputs:
