The 'Aggregates Industry in the Trent Valley: A History and Archaeology' project was undertaken by Tim Cooper of the ARCUS University of Sheffield and funded through the Aggregates Levy Sustainability Fund as distributed by English Heritage. The project takes a different approach to previous archaeological work in the Trent valley in that it takes the aggregates industry itself as the object of study. The project provides a detailed account of a regionally significant industry, and contributes to an understanding of the multifarious issues related to gravel extraction at national level.

The main output of the project was a CBA Research Report (RR159); Laying the foundations: A history and archaeology of the Trent Valley sand and gravel industry (ISBN: 9781902771762) published in 2008. Details of how to order the book can be found via the CBA website:

As with all CBA Research Reports, a digital version will become available on the ADS (in this case via these pages) in due course; for further information please see the CBA Research Report section of the ADS Library.
