The Online Archaeology Library

Worcestershire Archive and Archaeology Service (WAAS) has a library with a comprehensive collection of books, journals and other publications concerning the history and archaeology of Worcestershire. These include a large collection of 'grey literature' reports produced through the modern development process. These often exist in only a few copies and are, therefore, largely inaccessible to a general audience.

Accessing the Library after 31 December 2019

There will no longer be access to the Online Archaeology Library after the 31 December 2019. This is due to out of date software that is no longer used.

Most of the reports on the old Online Archaeology Library are now available on the Archaeology Data Service (opens in a new window), or in the digital libraries of larger archaeological units.

We are working towards ensuring that the remainder of the reports are transferred across to the Archaeology Data Service. 

This will require permission from copyright holders, but in the interim those reports can still be accessed by contacting the Historic Environment Record service directly.
