Council for British Archaeology Research Reports

Here is an outstanding set of archaeological reports on Ancient Britain from the Council for British Archaeology and the Archaeology Data Service.

List of reports

The complete series of CBA Research Reports, including microfiche, has been digitised and is being made available by the CBA as a staged process. Those reports now available are linked below.

They are available in PDF format, which preserves the layout of the original publication. To read the PDF files you will need the Adobe Acrobat Reader.
Lots of in-depth information for some light extra reading. Some of the more relevant articles will have links posted in future blog updates, but in the meantime feel free to browse and read what interests you ...

Since the CBA and ADS were so kind as to provide this for us, here is a little information about them.

The Council for British Archaeology is an educational charity working throughout the UK to involve people in archaeology and to promote the appreciation and care of the historic environment for the benefit of present and future generations.

The Archaeology Data Service supports research, learning and teaching with freely available, high quality and dependable digital resources. It does this by preserving digital data in the long term, and by promoting and disseminating a broad range of data in archaeology. The ADS promotes good practice in the use of digital data in archaeology, it provides technical advice to the research community, and supports the deployment of digital technologies.
