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:10.5284/1000077

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/10.5284/1000077

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:10.5284/1000077. The HTML for this would look like:

<a href="http://dx.doi.org/10.5284/1000077">doi:10.5284/1000077</a>

Introduction

Ixworth LiDAR image

The Suffolk River Valleys Project, was a joint initiative between Suffolk County Council Archaeological Service and The University of Birmingham, funded by English Heritage through the Aggregates Levy Sustainability Fund. The project was developed to address themes identified through discussions with curatorial and academic archaeologists working in Suffolk and arising in part from another ALSF funded project The Aggregate Landscape of Suffolk: The Archaeological Resource.

The project, which spanned two phases, sought to:

  • Provide baseline data addressing the geomorphological character of selected Suffolk valley floors and the potential of the landforms and sediments recorded within them for palaeoenvironmental reconstruction of the surrounding archaeological landscape.
  • Provide an assessment of the potential for the preservation of archaeological remains within Suffolk valleys through an understanding of their geomorphological history.
  • Review and collate both the grey and published palaeoenvironmental and geoarchaeological literature into a single volume, chronologically ordered review.
  • Assess the potential impact of groundwater changes on the historic environment and associated sediments.
