Archaeology of the Thornborough Area – Website

InvestigationArchaeology of the Thornborough Area – Archaeological excavation at Ladybridge Farm

An excellent use of web in the planning process .. they (agree with the project or not) –
have shown how to use technology to provide information, so it shows it can (on a long term project) be part of the process – and should be part of the site archive..

Open and Transparent…  and a view of Real Archaeology !!

I like it… (still a few rough edges) but I like it…in fact love it…..
quote from site:
Welcome to the Thornborough section of the APC web site, which aims to provide information on the archaeology around Thornborough Henges. Over the last four or five years so much information has been uploaded regarding Nosterfield and Ladybridge that we decided it was time to re-organise the site, and this is the result.

You can find information on all the archaeological investigations related to Nosterfield Quarry that have taken place, access the original site records and finds lists, browse photographs and view an online GIS (interactive map) displaying the archaeological features, fieldwalking plots etc.

The various archaeological works undertaken on behalf of Tarmac since 1995 are currently being brought together to form a single body of data, which can be accessed through the interactive map on this site. This is a work in progress, and it will obviously take time to assimilate the information collected over such a long period and by a number of different organisations, so please bear with us. We hope that the data will be supplemented by integrating other data sets, such as metal detecting finds etc. from other professional and amateur organisations alike.Square Barrow under excavation

This will eventually supercede the Nosterfield and Ladybridge sections of this web site, but the legacy pages will remain available through the links from the APC home page.

Please note that the resources available through this site are currently in development. Many past datasets are still to add, and new data will appear as work on site progresses.
