South East Research Framework

The South East Research Framework (SERF) aims to identify what we know about the South East's historic environment and what we want to know more about.

Researchers from all sectors of the archaeology community are working together to build a list of gaps in our current understanding and produce a research agenda and strategy for the future.

A public and stakeholder consultation on the draft Resource Assessment and Research Agenda Chapters ended on 7 March 2019.

A full consultation report of the Resource Assessment and Research Agenda Chapters will be available in August 2019 and consultation on the final chapter (Neolithic and Early Bronze Age) will take place in September.

Resource Assessment and Research Agendas Chapters

Following completion of this stage an implementation plan will be prepared, which will be subject to a subsequent consultation. It is also intended to publish the chapters as a print-on-demand illustrated publication later this year.

SERF is a partnership between East Sussex, Kent, Surrey and West Sussex. Historic England support the project financially.
