National Archaeological Identification Survey: Upland Pilot final project report

Author(s): Matthew Oakey, Marcus Jecock, Zoë Hazell, Neil Linford, Paul Linford, Andy Payne

This report describes the results of the National Archaeological Identification Survey: Upland Pilot (RaSMIS 6304) which comprised interpretation and mapping of air photographs and lidar, analytical field survey, geophysical survey, excavation, palaeoenvironmental study and scientific dating. It was carried out under the auspices of English Heritage but the teams involved in the project are now part of Historic England. The project created 535 new monument records in the National Record of the Historic Environment (NRHE) and amended a further 136. This report provides a summary of the nature and distribution of archaeological remains seen on air photographs and lidar, some of which were subsequently investigated by other techniques. It describes the methods, scope and sources of the project and assesses how the results have contributed to the aims, objectives and research questions set out in the Project Design. There are recommendations for further work within the project area and issues relating to heritage protection and potential designation are discussed.
