8th January 2021:
Did you know that many of our monographs are free to download from our digital library and other websites? To publicise this resource over the Christmas period, we ran a series entitled ’12 Days of OA publications’ on our Twitter, Facebook and Instagram accounts.
On the first day of OA publications, we brought to you Brandon Road, Thetford, where we found evidence of settlement activity from the early Roman to middle Saxon.
On the second day of OA publications, we brought to you Barrow Hills in Radley, Oxfordshire, where our excavations in the 1980s revealed a Neolithic and Bronze Age monument complex.
On the third day of OA publications, we brought to you a booklet about our work at Kingsway Business Park in Greater Manchester. Investigations there revealed evidence for prehistoric farming, a possible Roman road, and historic farm buildings and weavers’ cottages.
On the fourth day of OA publications, we brought to you Life and Afterlife at Duxford, which examined the archaeology and history in a chalkland community from prehistory to the medieval period.
On the fifth day of OA publications, we brought to you not five gold rings, but two Anglo-Saxon cemeteries in Oxfordshire: Berinsfield and Didcot. Read all about our excavations in the mid-1970s and early 1990s.
On the sixth day of OA publications, we brought to you Hell Upon Earth: the archaeology of Angel Meadow. In 2009, OAN undertook a major excavation at the site of One Angel Square, Manchester, which revealed rows of 18th century artisan’s homes with workshops. These had been partitioned in the 19th century to accommodate a rapidly expanding population.
On the seventh day of OA publications, we brought you Oxford before the University. Click here to read all about the fascinating archaeological discoveries that show the development of the city from the 7th to 12th centuries.
On the eighth day of OA publications, we brought to you a Viking-age mass grave on Ridgeway Hill, Weymouth.
On the ninth day of OA publications, we brought you a late Saxon village and medieval manor. Read all about our discoveries at Botolph Bridge, Orton Longueville, Peterbrough.
On the tenth day of OA publications, we brought to you Woodford: The archaeology of a landscape and aerodrome.
On the eleventh day of OA publications, we brought to you the archaeology of Roman Wigan. Find out about our excavation at the site of the Roman settlement of Coccium, including the discovery of a bath-house.
Finally, on the twelfth day of OA publications, we brought to you Piccadilly Place: Uncovering Manchester’s industrial origins.
