Comparing ‘productive sites’ (VASLE 2)

Suggested period: EARLY MEDIEVAL

Building on the VASLE project, we should now be able to use its methods with the far more extensive data of today’s PAS database to understand ‘productive sites’ better. VASLE analysed the relative proportions of artefacts and coins at different sites to produce graphs that could allow identification of different site types, or could suggest whether differences between sites should be explained in chronological, cultural, or functional terms. Local small-scale studies (e.g. those in a single eastern district, or a south-western county) could now re-run these analyses, and eventually combine to compare different areas in a consistent way.
