Title Enhancing the Palaeolithic and Mesolithic records of the South Yorkshire SMR
Summary The aim of this study was to enhance the Palaeolithic and Mesolithic period record within the South Yorkshire SMR and to further the development of appropriate mitigation strategies within the planning process. This was achieved through a reassessment and enhancement of existing records, the creation of new records with information gathered from published and unpublished sources and from repositories such as regional museums and libraries. Data from the Portable Antiquities Scheme were also interrogated. As a result, the number of recorded early prehistoric sites or findspots in South Yorkshire has more than doubled.
