A Research Framework for the Archaeology of Wales

East and North East Wales Archaeological Resource Audit

This Draft Resource Audit Report was produced in June 2002 by the Clwyd Powys Archaeological Trust as part of the first stage of an Archaeological Research Agenda for Wales - in line with an agreed specification produced by the steering group. The audit covers the Unitary Authority areas of Denbighshire, Flintshire, Powys, Wrexham and that eastern part of Conwy that was formerly in Clwyd.

The original report was produced as two (hard copy) volumes - dealing with the an audit of records, lists of key sites and relevant bibliographies presented by period, and 'county-wide' information dealing with scientific dating, environmental work, current research projects, and collections. This web version has been split into its five component sections, each of which can be accessed from the index below

This draft report has been compiled almost exclusively from readily available digital sources and were the product of a number of different processes and software packages. This copy has been made available as a web page and differs from the original in format but (hopefully) not in content.

This is draft report, and should be taken as such.  Its intended purpose is to feed into work on a Research Framework.  It should certainly not be seen as a primary information source in itself. It is assumed that in due course information arising from the Research Agenda process will be fed back into the various component records of this report.
