Urban Archaeological Databases

Deposit Modelling and Archaeology, Guidance for Mapping Buried Deposits, published by Historic England on 31 January 2020, suggests that Urban Archaeological Databases (UADs): ‘…provide detailed Historic Environment Record coverage for areas that have rich and complex below-ground archaeology; they have been created so far (2020) for about 30 historic towns and cities across England. They provide descriptions and maps of all individual pieces of archaeological work (‘Events’) which have taken place within a defined geographical area, along with a summary of all the ‘Monuments’ which have been identified by that work.’
