Research Strategy

Tables summarising the Research Objectives defined for each period are presented in this section, together with the Agenda Themes and Topics which they address (permitting correlations between the Agenda and Strategy to be clearly defined). The tables are organised chronologically, with a table for each of the nine periods which have been used to categorise the archaeology of the East Midlands.

A photo of a large archaeological site, where a very substantial stone structure has been exposed. A layout of walls, rooms and passageways can be seen. A group of people are working on the site.

West Cotton, Northamptonshire: revealing the built heritage. The photograph shows the domestic range of Tenement A (late 13th to 15th century), a late medieval drainage ditch along its frontage, and Tenement B (13th century) in the background (Chapman 2010, pl. 9; reproduced by permission of MOLA Northampton)

For further discussion of how the Research Strategy has been compiled, how it is presented and correlations with other research frameworks, see the introduction to this section. For guidance on how to add information and comments to the Research Strategy, go to How to Contribute.Comments on how recent work has addressed period Research Objectives are contained within the Research Agenda section, enabling monitoring work on both the Agenda and Strategy via a single form.
