The Rural Settlement of Roman Britain

PPG 16 (Planning Policy 16) was implemented in 1990. It embedded the principle of developers paying for the mitigation of any damage, or loss to the archaeological heritage, that might result from their proposals by means of preservation by record. It was superseded by PPS 5 (Planning Policy Statement 5) in 2010 (which in turn has been superseded by the National Planning Policy Framework). As a consequence of PPG 16 a great deal of excavation has been carried out on the archaeology of Roman Britain, particularly on the rural settlement of England, but the majority of that work has not been published (the 'grey literature'), but is archived in local authority Historic Environment Records. The aim of the Leverhulme project is to research both unpublished and published sources to write a new account of the rural settlement of Roman Britain. The results will be published on an interactive web-site in collaboration with the Archaeology Data Service, University of York and in a book-length study.The project will run from April 2012 to September 2015.
