So you’re intrigued by by what we’ve found? Want to see the data for yourself?

Everything we dig up is available online. Whether you want to use the evidence for your own research, or just check whether you agree or disagree with the archaeologists’ conclusions in the site report, our extremely brief and incredibly useful guide will help you get started.

Watch (or re-watch) the dig

To see how the action unfolded, you can replay the dig and watch it all as it happened – all the videos, diaries and big discoveries are filed in the Timeline (top right).

Read the in-depth Site Reports

We write up all our discoveries in official Site Reports – a great way to get a real archaeological perspective on what we’ve found. However, we do caution a bit of patience – reports can take several months to write so may not appear immediately.

Delve into the data

Ok, so you’ve had fun watching the dig, and reading what we think it all means, but now you want to see the detail. Go to Open Data (top right).

Finds

The first thing you’ll see are the finds. From coins and jewelry to combs and cooking pots, you can click on any object to find out more and even see a 3D model.

Features  and Trenches

Of course, archaeology isn’t just about artefacts – it’s about features too. That means ditches, post holes, rubbish pits. Oh, and there are plans, sections and soil samples too! Use the row of buttons to look through the different types of records we keep. To see where everything was found, the trench icon collects all these different strands together, allowing you to explore the data through a 3D model of the trench itself.

 

Who found it?

Each record shows who found it and put it online. Just click their name to see who they are and what else they found.

Download the data

All this data is open access. That means you can use it to do your own research. To download any of the data, go to ‘advanced search’, filter the data you want and click the CSV download button.
