Archaeology Data Service: Homepage. Homepage - WWII Heritage. Providers. DIRECTORY - Archives Portal Europe. Hello from The Archaeological Settlements of Turkey - TAY Project Portal! Was set up to build a chronological inventory of findings for the cultural heritage of Turkey - an important component of World Heritage sites - and to share this information with the international community.

Hello from The Archaeological Settlements of Turkey - TAY Project Portal!

Although both Anatolia and Thrace have revealed cultural traces dating to at least 400.000 years ago, results from early 19th century investigations as well as data generated by current surveys and excavations are neither well organised nor easily accessible. The locations of many sites remain unknown, while many of them have been and continue to be destroyed, taking their undiscovered secrets with them. In order to stop this cycle, it is essential to collect and compile all available cultural heritage information to establish and maintain a central inventory: if we do not document, we cannot protect. TAY project's central aim is to thoroughly document all archaeological settlements within Turkey (such as mounds, monuments, tumuli, cemeteries, etc.).

Collections - Segedunum Roman Fort

The Roman collections at Segedunum relate to the more recent excavations of the 1970s, 80s and 90s. Their particular significance lies in the fact that they represent a comparatively comprehensive span of both the 300 year occupation of the site, and of the assorted structures within it. Several items deserve particular mention, including the only stone toilet seat from Roman Britain, a delightful portable shrine, surviving spearheads and sections of ring mail armour and a collection of rounded throwing stones - defensive missiles for the Fort. The Strong Place Gallery has artefacts associated with local coalmining and shipbuilding as well some Roman objects from more recent excavations close to the river.

Introduction English Heritage has a long tradition of producing highly illustrated archaeological monographs about key sites and topics of importance to the understanding of the historic environment in England.

English Heritage Archaeological Monographs: Monographs

Many of the past titles have long been out of print and yet are still of value for reference purposes. As a service to the wider archaeological community, English Heritage is now making these titles available as ebooks (see the English Heritage Publishing catalogue for details) and as PDFs which can be accessed here for free. The PDFs are, in the main, scans of the original publications and reproduce the pages of those publications. While we have tried to ensure that the pages are legible, file size limitations may mean that some pages are less clear and, in case of doubt, users should consult the original publication.
