About this collection

Charting a decade of intensive fieldwork along a 2km stretch of the Colne Fen, Earith fen-edge, these online files support the text publication of the excavation results, including the work of 65 contributing specialists, and present the raw data used in post-excavation analysis.

The publications and these additional resources explore the long-term interplay of landscape process and (proto-) historicism. Appropriate to the practice of a comparative archaeology and the ‘challenge of numbers’, emphasis has been given to multiple-scale settlement and spatial/distributional analyses. Researchers and specialists are thus encouraged to access and use this online resource in conjunction with the publications, or as stand-alone data for their own comparative analyses.
