The project was undertaken by Museum of London Archaeology and Northamptonshire County Council, as part of the Terrestrial Minerals Resource Assessment (TMRA) administered by English Heritage. The aim of the project was to map past, current and future mineral extraction areas in Northamptonshire; enhance HER data within such areas that includes a statement of significance for undesignated assets; analyse heritage assets that have been lost to past minerals extraction, along with the likely impact of future extraction in relation to asset significance, type, period and character; and use the data and research agenda as a framework for analysing and reporting the results, trends of loss and enhancements to current understanding of past human activity. The project also provided an assessment of the impact of mineral extraction on the historic environment in a quantifiable and systematic manner.
