In Touch has been produced since April 2007, as a quarterly internal magazine and until now has only  been available to Oxford Archaeology staff.

While many items that have appeared in In Touch have featured on the website as news stories, Oxford Archaeology wanted to share the magazine with a wider audience and let the public know in more detail about our exciting work that is happening all over the country.

Issue 31 takes a look back over 2013 and 2014 to bring you a taste of the huge variety of our projects, including excavations, historic building recording, heritage services, community archaeology projects, and publication. It also takes a more in-depth look at key aspects of our recent work, for example the tremendous success we have had setting up and delivering Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) projects, and working with English Heritage on its National Heritage Protection Plan (NHPP). In addition, the issue features a summary of our strategy and vision for 2020.

In this special edition of In Touch you will find some highlights from 2013/14. They range in time from Palaeolithic knapping sites in Bexhill to war art at RAF Upper Heyford, and geographically from the Roman extra-mural settlement at Maryport to Dover Castle. Buildings archaeology, community archaeology, work on infrastructure, housing, urban development and utilities schemes, as well as items on a range of heritage services, can all be found here.

You will be impressed, and can download a copy of In Touch issue 31 by clicking here.

Sharing the work we do – whether field archaeologist or specialist in the lab, is an important stage of any archaeological project – to the clients, the staff and both the local community and general public – this is the story of our shared heritage.
