Ok, so you’ve had fun watching the dig, but now you want to see the detail. Start by clicking Dig Records.
This will take you to our database, and the first thing you’ll see is a category called ‘Small Finds‘. These are objects, materials and artefacts that have been found on the dig that are deemed to be significant enough to be recorded individually. 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.
Bulk finds (e.g., lots of pieces of Roman roofing tile, which are better off recorded in bulk) can be found byb looking at an individual trench or context.
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.
Each record shows who found it and put it online. Just click their name to see who they are and what else they found
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.
