A research framework for London archaeology 2002


Taryn Nixon, Ellen McAdam, Roberta Tomber, Hedley Swain


A research framework for London archaeology follows The archaeology of Greater London (MoLAS 2000) and is intended to be used in conjunction with it to realise the potential of the London Archaeological Archive, to manage the archaeological resource more effectively, and to generate more focused research. Chronological periods are summarised with reference to current knowledge and research questions. Research priorities are addressed through five major themes: topography and landscape; development; economy; people and society; and continuity and change. Finally, the Research framework advocates the development of a research culture and strategy which will allow us to get more out of London archaeology.
