The coastal area of Purbeck in Dorset is rich in archaeological finds, and much rescue work has recently taken place here due to oil-field and other industrial development. The Purbeck project was initiated to see what could be added to this knowledge through modern methods of archaeological survey and through the analysis of historical sources. The papers in this collection look at various aspects of Purbeck history and archaeology, from the Iron Age, Roman and Medieval periods, to the eighteenth century.
