The Archaeology of the East Midlands. An Archaeological Resource Assessment and Research Agenda

This volume presents an Archaeological Resource Assessment and Research Agenda for the East Midlands. The region comprises the modern counties of Derbyshire, Leicestershire, Lincolnshire, Northamptonshire and Nottinghamshire, and the unitary authorities of Leicester, Nottingham and Rutland and is coincident with that covered by the East Midlands Development Agency (emda) and the Government Office for the East Midlands (GOEM). The volume is the product of the first two stages of the three-stage East Midlands Archaeological Research Framework project, sponsored jointly by English Heritage and the local authorities of the region. The aims of this document are:

  • To provide an accessible and up to date overview of the current state of archaeological knowledge in the region.
  • To highlight the major gaps in that knowledge and potential areas where the region can contribute to regionally and nationally important research questions.
  • To encapsulate the archaeological character of the region and its research potential and therefore act as an authoritative reference tool in the future management of that resource in the interests of curation, conservation, education, public appreciation and research.
