PRS staff publications

Over the last ten years PRS staff have been co-authors of several hundred evaluation, assessment, and technical reports on archaeological sites from throughout the UK. Many of these reports were prepared for commercial developers and remain as 'grey literature' in the series Reports from the EAU, York and, from November 2001, PRS series reports. Lists of these reports by year can be found here (as pdf documents):
