Following on from a number of meetings funded by the AHRC/EPSRC Science and Heritage scheme, this network is intending to continue working on the 4 projects below. If you would like to participate in one of these projects, please leave a comment on this website, or email Rupert Till –

1. Rollwright Stones Group Analysis

The network suggested launching a project to analyse the acoustics of the Rollwright Stones. A project event would be held to which as many people as possible would be invited. The idea would be to get as many as possible different individuals or groups to analyse the acoustics of the site, in order to get as much information as possible, and to be able to compare and aggregate different the results of different methodological approaches.

2. Research Methodology and Best Practice

Please look at the methodology section on the right hand side. The group is continuing to develop documents discussing best practice and methodology. Contributions are needed to this discussion, please join in.

3. Anechoic recordings

A project is needed that would create a set of anechoic recordings suitable for use within archaeoacoustic studies. These recordings would be dB rated at set levels.

4. Development of ISO standards

A group is needed to develop a set of ISO standard testing methodologies for archeoacoustic projects. This would create perhaps 3 standards that would range from the most simple to advanced research techniques. This research would also develop a benchmarking paper.

In Addition

Major Grant Applications for the AHRC/EPSRC Science and Heritage Research Programme

A number of researchers from within this network, applied for the major grant scheme. Results of funding are not yet available, but there may be opportunities to participate in any project which receives funding. Watch this site for details.

A group associated with this network, but principally aligned to the I Hear Too network also applied for funding.

Post-doctoral research fellowship within the AHRC/EPSRC Science and Heritage Research Programme

At least two participants in the AMBP Network who presented at the public symposia submitted applications to the post-doctoral research fellowship scheme. Results of their funding applications are not yet available, but we will aim to publish details of their projects if they are funded.

A number of researchers associated with this project are continuing their own ongoing projects. There may be opportunities to get involved in these projects, check the links at the top of the page for details.
