Wessex Archaeology is pleased to announce that the new draft research
agenda for the Stonehenge and Avebury World Heritage Site is now
publicly available for consultation via the SARRF website:[...]ltshire/stonehenge-avebury-rrf

The agenda is supported by a revised resource assessment for Avebury and an update for Stonehenge, which are also available via the website.

Wessex Archaeology is being funded by English Heritage to manage the
preparation of this document and coordinate voluntary contributions from
professionals and academics with expert knowledge of the World Heritage

The project team is keen to receive feedback from colleagues and the
wider public regarding the content of the current texts. Please email
your comments and suggestions to

Please also feel free to disseminate to anyone you feel would be
interested in commenting on the agenda or the resource assessments.

Some Avebury resource assessment papers remain outstanding, but will be uploaded to the website to view as soon as they are received.

Consultation will close in September, after which all comments received
will be carefully considered and reflected in the final revised Research
Framework documents. We appreciate your time in responding to this
consultation, and in making an important contribution to help guide
future work at the Stonehenge and Avebury World Heritage Site.

Thanks for the heads-up VBB, a very interesting document. Plenty to discuss with many 'unfinished' areas to be revisited and an opportunity to to express ones views. Just ONE of the first things that stood out for me was the complete excavation of a new barrow but plenty there to hold forum discussion on. Bring it on.
