We help shape research priorities and industry standards and practices

Oxford Archaeology, in partnership with Wessex Archaeology, published the Regional Research Frameworks volume for the Solent-Thames region.

OA has undertaken a range of research projects into pottery of various date, including early Iron Age Darmsden-Linton ware and a corpus of medieval pottery in Cambridgeshire, which contribute new typologies and fabric series, forming essential reference works for ceramic specialists across Britain. OA has also played a major part in the development of the North West Archaeological Research Framework, providing both a period co-ordinator as well as contributors.

In addition, OA staff are routinely involved in a wide range of national and regional research and advisory forums for archaeology and the historic environment that are key for sharing the results of our work and developing strategies and policies for research.
