The Ure-Swale Archaeology Forum (USAF) consists of a group of archaeologists, heritage organisations and non-professionals who share an interest in, and concern for, the prehistoric and historic archaeology of the Ure-Swale river catchment in Yorkshire, UK. This area includes a range of outstanding archaeological sites and historic landscapes, including the Thornborough henge complex, Roman Catterick, and the remarkable medieval landscapes of Swaledale and Wensleydale. Our activity couples research — including fieldwork, documentary histories, and the creation of exciting research agendas — with the public promotion and better management of this archaeology. It is currently co-ordinated by Dr Jan Harding via a Newcastle University Virtual Research Environment. Please contact him if you are interested in getting involved.
