About the Project

 All archaeological investigation should attempt to answer research questions, and research frameworks help us to design projects with this in mind. They can help by telling us three things: What do we already know? What do we want to know? How will we find out?

The questions set out in a Research Framework can be used by professional archaeologists, community groups and academics – in fact anyone interested in investigating archaeology. South Yorkshire Archaeology Service is now coordinating a project to develop a Research Framework for South Yorkshire.

The project is being funded and supported by Historic England.
