Wessex Archaeology issues statement on Archaeological Archive Storage

A different perspective on the crisis facing archaeology is provided in the statement by Wessex Archaeology. As an archaeological contractor, they are left holding substantial archives that cannot be transferred to a museum as their stores are full. Wessex Archaeology is now forced to turn to its contractual relationship with its clients to seek to recover the costs of storing finds. This is a national problem, extending far beyond Wiltshire. Wessex Archaeology is just one of the contractors that are carrying the costs of the failure in the planning system to recognise that 'preservation by record' only works if developers carry the full cost of storing the archives. The current system is unsustainable in the terms of the National Planning Policy Framework. The development of Core Strategies and the introduction of the Community Infrastructure Levy provide a way of unblocking this logjam. Salisbury and Wiltshire Museums have worked closely with Wiltshire Council to provide an innovative solution to the problem of storing archaeological archives in the longer term. In the short term, our stores are full.

Wednesday, 6 February 2013

Archaeological Archives

Salisbury Museum and Wiltshire Museum take archaeological archives from developer-funded excavations across Wiltshire. With the deposition of a number of recent archives, our stores are now full, and we are unable to take further archives.

We will continue to collect objects that have been found by members of the public, and from small projects that are not a result of the planning process. This includes small research projects, particularly by community archaeology groups.

The two museums have written to Wiltshire Council to outline the situation in more detail. The issue is recognised by Wiltshire Council in the Core Strategy that is currently being reviewed by the Government. We expect that in due course, funding from development taking place in the County will fund the creation of adequate storage for archaeological archives.

A copy of the letter can be downloaded here.

Saturday lecture - 'The Medieval Cistercian Abbey at Stanley and its Impact on the Region'


Saturday 9 February, 2.30pm, by Dr Graham Brown.

Nothing today survives of Stanley Abbey (near Chippenham) but this talk will explain more about the Abbey, the Cistercians and their methods of managing their lands.

The monastery was founded in 1151 in the royal forest of Chippenham and suppressed by Henry VIII’s commissioners nearly 400 years later in 1536. During this time the Abbey was influential in transforming the landscape, in some cases by clearing land, draining marshland and cultivating it, while in other cases they adopted an already exploited landscape and adapted it for their own needs. Stanley Abbey was a Cistercian monastery and the monks were distinctive in their ideals and their methods of managing their lands. Nothing survives today of the Abbey apart from some earthworks marking the position of the church and some conventual buildings. The monks acquired extensive tracts of land in Wiltshire.

Before retiring in 2010, Dr Graham Brown was a Field Archaeologist with English Heritage for eighteen years. He previously served in the Army for 29 years. He is co-author of a book on The Field Archaeology of Salisbury Plain Training Area (2002) and co-editor of The Avebury Landscape (2005), and has written several papers that have been published in the Wiltshire Archaeological and Natural History Magazine. He was awarded a PhD for his research on Stanley Abbey.

* Tel: 01380 727369 (office hours Tuesday to Friday 10am to 5pm)

Wiltshire Landowners in 1066

A Saturday afternoon lecture by Dr Chris Lewis -26 January 2013, 2.30pm.

We would understand the effects of the Norman Conquest much better if we knew more about who owned England in 1066 and what happened to them after the battle of Hastings. The names of pre-Conquest landowners were recorded in Domesday Book, but for the most part without distinguishing people of the same name among the confusion of Edwins, Godrics, Azurs, and Ælfstans. A research project at King’s College London is now systematically working through the material for the whole of England, identifying hundreds of individual landowners - great and small - for the first time. We are writing biographical profiles, creating maps and tables and widening our knowledge of English landed society at the end of the Anglo-Saxon period. This lecture presents the results for Wiltshire: it explains who owned Wiltshire in 1066 and suggests what happened to them when the Normans came.

Chris Lewis has been a Research Fellow at King’s College London since 2010, working on Profile of a Doomed Elite: The Structure of English Landed Society in 1066. He has published extensively on late Anglo-Saxon England and the Norman Conquest, and previously worked for the Victoria County History in Cambridgeshire, Cheshire, and Sussex.

Lectures commence at 2.30pm and last approx. one hour.  The Lecture Hall is accessible via a lift if required, has a hearing loop and is air conditioned.

Book on-line, email wanhs@wiltshireheritage.org.uk or telephone 01380 727369 (weekdays Tuesday to Friday 11am to 5pm).

Visiting us this month?

We have temporarily made some changes to our opening times to allow us to focus on our exciting Prehistoric Wiltshire Galleries project. From 31 December the Museum will be CLOSED to visitors on Mondays and will open at 11am on Tuesdays.  

We will reopen on Mondays from 25 March.
