Unlocking the Past

The Archaeology of Aggregate Sites in Worcestershire

 Unlocking the past is an initiative made possible by a grant from English Heritage through the Aggregates Levy Sustainability Fund. It celebrates, and gives account of, the many important archaeological discoveries that have been made within quarries by quarry workers and archaeologists, from the early 19th century onwards.

The grant has given Worcestershire's Historic Environment and Archaeology Service the opportunity to build this internet resource, so that the wider community has access to the story that these discoveries tell of human occupation in the region from prehistoric times to the present day.
