The Archaeology of the East Midlands: An Archaeological Resource Assessment and Research Agenda, the printed outcome of the project, was published in March 2006. More information is available in this leaflet (PDF). The volume comprises edited and updated versions of the period overview papers supported by maps and pictures.
The original versions of the period overviews and the county by county papers (not included in the printed volume) are presented below as the results of the first two phases in the construction of an Archaeological Research Framework for the East Midlands, a project funded jointly by English Heritage and the local authorities of the region and co-ordinated by University of Leicester Archaeological Services (ULAS).
The Adobe Acrobat files (PDFs) published here firstly comprise the texts of the first phase of the project, a period-by-period Archaeological Resource Assessments covering the Palaeolithic to Modern periods in Derbyshire, Leicestershire and Rutland, Lincolnshire, Northamptonshire and Nottinghamshire. They were originally presented at a series of seminars held at County Hall, Leicester between 1998 and 2000. The texts should be viewed as draft documents which will be augmented over time with distribution maps and bibliographic information. For a more detailed background to the project, please consult the Introductory file (PDF).
Collectively the chapters form a document, a Draft Archaeological Resource Assessment for the East Midlands which provides the basis for the second phase of the project, the writing of a synthetic publication, entitled The Archaeology of the East Midlands: an Archaeological Resource Assessment and Research Agenda for the East Midlands (now published).
Development of a research strategy document (Stage 3 of the framework) is due to begin shortly.
