Archaeology possesses a distinct advantage in illuminating historical eras, particularly when it comes to exploring local history. Over the years, Oxford Archaeology has engaged in numerous projects that specifically concentrate on significant local heritage sites, thereby providing a wealth of information about the lives of individuals from all levels of society and about key periods of change. Noteworthy projects include Trinity Burial Ground in Hull and the Radcliffe Infirmary in Oxford, important burial sites that have shaped a new and better understanding about these cities at crucial times of their history. Local heritage projects offer great opportunities to create connections with the past and actively contribute to meaningful placemaking for today’s communities.
