Project Description: 

At the Ashmolean Museum five documentary archives were identified, each associated with a major figure in the history of the archaeological investigation of Oxfordshire, c.1870 — c.1950. All of these archives are striking for the importance of the information they contain and for the current lack of knowledge concerning their contents in the public domain. The project integrates the archive information with the Oxfordshire Records Office and Oxfordshire Sites and Monuments Record making the information freely available for local history and other research. An internet learning resource based on these records is available on this site for educational and recreational use providing information on sites across Oxfordshire.
