Aggregates and Archaeology in Nottinghamshire

Front cover for Aggregates and Archaeology in Nottinghamshire

By David Knight, Ursilla Spence

This booklet, published by York Archaeological Trust, has been written by David Knight (Trent and Peak Archaeology) and Ursula Spence (Nottinghamshire County Council- NCC), with important contributions from Virginia Baddeley (NCC), David Budge and Andy Gaunt (both formerly of NCC). It focuses upon the assessment, evaluation and mitigation techniques that should be employed during the development of archaeological schemes of treatment in advance of aggregates extraction and the research priorities that should inform these.

This project was conducted with funding from the Aggregates Levy Sustainability Fund, distributed by English Heritage on behalf of the Department of Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra).
