History of the Project

The above deliverables were the work of Andrew Hutt, Paul Goodenough and Valerie Pyne. They started the project in 2004 once they finished studying for a Masters Degree in Archaeology at Reading University. The project was sponsored by the Berkshire Archaeological Trust and Professor Richard Bradley of Reading University agreed to review its work.

The research work took five years and a further year to complete the book. The project is now working to make the deliverables available to people living in and around Berkshire.

Berkshire Archaeological Trust was dissolved in 2010 and its assets and responsibilites transferred to the Berkshire Archaeological Society.
