Wharram Percy Village

The primary aim of the project has been to disseminate, by the most appropriate means, the results of the excavations carried out at the deserted medieval village site of Wharram Percy, North Yorkshire, between 1950 and 1990. The current phase of the project began in 2000, and has resulted in thirteen publications detailing the principal findings of excavations carried out in various parts of the village site between 1950 and 1990. These volumes have been based on lengthier archive reports and datasets relating to the analysis of stratigraphic, artefactual and environmental data, and it is some of these data that are being disseminated through the Archaeology Data Service (ADS).

Given the enormous quantity of data produced from the 40 year excavation project, it has been possible to disseminate via ADS only the unpublished information created in digital format during this final phase of the Post-excavation Analysis and Publication Project. It includes the full site reports and illustrations for the excavations reported only in summary form in Volume XIII; the analytical data for finds reported in Volumes X-XIII, and a number of more complete datasets relating to material published in all thirteen volumes, including pottery, animal bone, human remains, clay pipes and coins.
