Leaders in archaeological research and publication

From its inception in 1973, 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 many new books and papers roll off the press. Our award-winning publications are delivered by an expert team of authors, illustrators and editors. Our specialist staff have expertise in a wide range of material types and time periods.

As an educational charity, we have a long tradition of pioneering research and are proud to be able to drive forward archaeological research across the UK and the wider world. We often undertake interdisciplinary collaborations with other organisations and specialists. This enables us to understand archaeological sites in their landscape context and to explore changing patterns of culture, settlement and land use over time. We also undertake strategic research, for example as part of Historic England’s National Heritage Protection Plan (NHPP). Our teams also help to shape regional and national research priorities and industry standards and practices, routinely making contributions to research frameworks and guidelines.
