Coppergate Viking Research Archives to be Available Online

The Environmental Archaeology Unit (EAU) and the Archaeology Data Service (ADS) have announced that the archives for some of the research done at the Coppergate Anglo-Scandinavian site in York, England will be available online. Dr William Kilbride, User Services Manager for the Archaeology Data Service, has announced that the research on the botanical and faunal remains found at the Coppergate site will soon be available for educational and research purposes. The material will include previously unpublished data on wood and timber studies, and plant and animal species. It will also include the full text of the five-volume technical report.

Coppergate was one of the richest archaeological sites for information on Anglo-Saxon and Viking England. It has now become the Jorvik Viking Centre in York.
