Many beautiful and historically significant coins & artefacts and previously unknown ancient sites have already been found and reported by field walkers and metal detectorists who have used the archiUK database for their research.
By subscribing to archiUK you automatically gain quick and easy access to information on more than 190, 000+ UK archaeological sites.
Each record includes the map reference (co-ordinate) of each site with a link to a road map and an aerial photograph.
In addition, the database also holds data on archaeologically significant field names and place-names from historical records such as the Tithe Apportionment lists and ancient documents. It is believed that ARCHI UK is the only database where this information can be searched via Postcodes, Places and Co-ordinates and accessed within an archaeological context.
The ARCHI UK database (Archaeological Sites Index) contains details of sites mentioned in rare books and archaeological reports / surveys which are not easily found outside specialist libraries.
The 190, 000+ UK archaeological sites listed in the ARCHI UK (ARCHI UK) database come from published sources such as hundreds of archaeological reports, county archaeological journals, findspots reported by archaeologists, fieldwalkers and metal detectorists and treasure hunters who have previously reported their finds while treasure hunting. The data from a search links to aerial photographs of sites enabling you to view many fascinating cropmarks and pinpoint the exact locations of the sites recorded in the database on the ground. The field-name data is of special interest because it can lay the ground for the discovery of previously unknown historic and ancient sites and further our knowledge and understanding of Britain's history.
There is continuous work on the development of new technical features designed to further simplify the the identification and location of existing and new archaeological sites in the UK
For archaeology students and researchers it can also operate as a geo-referenced bibliography of the archaeological literature relevant to British Archaeology. Its very nature facilitates a search of the literature in a geographic context thus providing students and academics alike with a means to overcome the limitations of the traditional keyword approach to retrieval of geographically based information.
Further, a bibliographic source for nearly every record is provided along with direct links to an aerial photograph and a local road map showing the position of the site.
Note that public access to this database is not available anywhere else.t for one year. Also, you will be able to gain access to any new information for one year when it is added to the database for no extra cost.
