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
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.
The website also provides many links to
other heritage organisations, to research and conservation groups,
to schools and universities, to museum and archive collections, and
to local community groups who are not traditionally connected to
the world of archaeology.
