Over 45 years of research and publication
From its inception, Oxford Archaeology has been committed to ensuring that the results of its fieldwork and other activities are disseminated as widely as possible. This has traditionally been through printed media, principally monographs and journal articles, but is increasingly through digital means. We have a proud record of publication, and each year sees new books and papers roll off the press.
OA has a long tradition of pioneering research to understand archaeological sites in their landscape context and the changing patterns of occupation and use over time. OA also undertakes strategic research, for example as part of Historic England's National Heritage Protection Plan (NHPP).
In addition to carrying out research and publishing the results of excavation, OA helps to shape research priorities and industry standards and practices, routinely making contributions to research frameworks and guidelines.
