Sharing widely the outcomes of your heritage work
We have produced thousands of reports for our clients and hundreds of publications tailored to different audiences. Our experience allows us to produce high-quality reports that meet the expectations of clients and local authorities. The publications that we have produced have helped to provide a legacy for these projects and to deliver social value.
We are a major publisher of archaeological reports, producing several monograph series, including Thames Valley Landscapes and Lancaster Imprints, and contributing to other major series, such as East Anglian Archaeology Reports.
Many of our reports are published in regional, national or international archaeological journals. Such reports bring the results of our work to local communities, researchers and specialists.
Our popular booklets present the archaeological stories of the sites we investigate to the public in an engaging format. These booklets give an account of the discoveries, supported by non-technical explanations of archaeological terminology and techniques.
A research committee oversees and maintains Oxford Archaeology's intellectual integrity with particular regard to its published reports, including academic journal articles and major monograph publications, demonstrating our determination to undertake and publish work of significant academic and intellectual value within an increasingly diverse archaeological environment.
Our digital library contains thousands of client or ‘grey literature’ reports, which are available to download, along with many of our published monographs.
Oxford Archaeology has a dedicated archive department that has extensive experience in the preparation of archives. Our specialist archives team prepares both the documentary and material archives from all our fieldwork and post-excavation projects and deposits them for public access and research in nationally and locally recognised repositories and museums. This includes preparation of the many digital-born datasets into Core Seal repositories, such as the Archaeology Data Service, where they can be accessed for research projects.
We have successfully deposited over 5000 archives from projects ranging in size from small-scale watching briefs to major multi-period, multi-site infrastructure projects, such as Crossrail, High Speed 1, High Speed 2, and several major road schemes. We ensure that whole archives are prepared to meet the criteria of the receiving repository. We have also taken on archives from other institutions for preparation and deposition, including the Tower of London, Torre Abbey and Camber Castle.
