The archaeology, buildings and historic landscape of South East England (East Sussex, Kent, Surrey and West Sussex) comprise an outstanding inheritance that helps to give the region its distinctive character and sense of identity.
This historic environment is also a rich resource for education, research and leisure, but what do we actually know about the region's past, and what are the questions we want and need to answer?
The South East Research Framework for the historic environment is an opportunity for all those who care about the region's heritage to take stock and plan how limited resources should be used.
Providing the foundations for future archaeological and historical work in Surrey
The Surrey Research Framework (SRF) aims to:
identify the main gaps in our current understanding about Surrey's past
- set out topics for future research
- strengthen co-ordination of effort on research into Surrey's historic environment
The Artefact and Archive Research Group (AARG) is a friendly group who meet weekly to process many of the archaeological finds resulting from current excavations in Surrey.
