Ipswich Historic Core: Excavation Archive
Project 5746 Analysis Stage End of Project Case Study
By Jude Plouviez
Ipswich has a rich archaeological record including an internationally important Middle Anglo-Saxon period settlement. There was a large backlog of archives from archaeological investigations carried out between 1974 and 1990, which predated present standard flows of archive deposition.
The methodology may be applicable elsewhere and the report includes lessons learned from this project.
Suffolk County Council prepared this report.
This Historic England funded project has consolidated the archives and made them available digitally through the Archaeology Data Service.
