British Antiquarian and Archaeological Archives at the Ashmolean Museum:

British Archaeology Topographic Files

The Department of Antiquities holds a set of files of archaeological information organised alphabitically by British parish or placename. The files date mainly to the 1960s-1970s, but remained active until the 1990s They cover mostly places in Oxfordshire and surrounding counties, but places in other parts of Britain are represented. The files include correspondence, fieldwork notes, sketches, photographs, press-cuttings, booklets, offprints, and drafts of record cards and publications. The files were originally listed by Department of Antiquities Conservators in 1995, when the files were transferred to archival storage. The catalogue was revised and updated during the AHRC funded British Archaeology at the Ashmolean project.
