Community Based Research Projects

Community Based Research Projects

In-depth research on a specific aspect of the archaeological or historical past or a cultural heritage management issue may be undertaken at the request of English Heritage, local authorities or national park authorities.  Work may also be undertaken in association with academic institutions such as university archaeological departments. 

Recent projects of this nature with which the Archaeological Practice Ltd and its associates has been involved include the following: excavation and analysis of the results of rabbit damage at Harehaugh hillfort in Coquetdale; post-excavation analysis and writing-up of earlier investigations at Haltonchesters, Housesteads and Wallsend Roman forts; and studies of Droving in Northumberland and Beer and whisky production in CoquetdaleVillage Atlas and similar reports for community groups or bodies such as national park authorities also involve a significant element of primary research. The Archaeological Practice also maintains the Krajina Project, a research programme focussed on north-west Bosnia, combining archaeological fieldwork and ethnographic study to examine frontier communities of the Ottoman and Habsburg empires.
