The EUS for Northamptonshire has been funded by English Heritage as part of its national programme intended to tackle the lack of archaeological work on small towns.

It is hoped that these reports will remedy the lack of adequate information and research agenda faced by those responsible for ensuring the effective preservation, evaluation and recording of elements of the urban environment threatened by development processes. It is also intended to provide English Heritage with guidance as to what resources may be worthy of statutory protection through Scheduling or Listing, and assist the District and Borough Councils of Northamptonshire in the definition of Conservation Areas. The survey encompasses all known nucleated settlements in the county from the Roman to the modern period, with the notable exception of Northampton which is the subject of a separate Intensive Urban Survey project.

The additional potential of the Extensive Urban Survey project to contribute to wider initiatives concerned with improving the appreciation and understanding of the historic urban environment of the county has also been recognised.
