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:10.5284/1040793. The HTML for this would look like:
Wardell Armstrong Archaeology (2016) Brockhill East Geophysical Survey, Redditch, Worcestershire (OASIS ID: wardella2-246553) [data-set]. York: Archaeology Data Service [distributor] (doi:10.5284/1040793)
In March 2016 Wardell Armstrong Archaeology (WAA) undertook a geophysical survey of land at Brockhill East, Redditch, Worcestershire. The survey was undertaken for Persimmon Homes South Midlands, to provide information in relation to a planning application for a housing development at the site.
Previous archaeological work in the ‘Phase 1’ development area to the southwest of the site identified an Iron Age enclosure of Middle to Late Iron Age date, with a single internal pit, the whole site being very truncated. A rare Iron Age cremation was recovered from the enclosure ditch (Worcestershire Archaeology 2012).
The objective of the geophysical survey was therefore to determine the presence/absence, nature and extent of potential archaeological features within the study area, and the presence/absence of any known modern features within the survey area, which may affect the results.
Geomagnetic survey was undertaken over the majority of the study area on a field-by-field basis, which comprised arable land at the time of the survey. A number of the geophysical anomalies were detected at the site, which are believed to be agricultural in origin, including evidence for plough furrows and former field boundaries. A number of former gravel pits were also present on site. A number of other possible soil-filled features were detected, although no definite archaeological remains were identified.
