This database allows you to search for finds across all the interventions at Cottam B, including fieldwalking, metal detecting and excavation, although not all finds are recorded to the same level of detail.
There are 1721 entries in this dataset. The dataset has been designed to be as easy to use as possible. Simply choose your desired criteria from the drop down lists below then select the search button to get your results.
You may select the boxes beside each field to control how you see your query results. Note that no field is actually ignored by the search (this function only affects how the results are viewed), so be careful not to create 'impossible' queries e.g. do not select artefact=bell as well as material=chalk, or pottery fabric=Bronze Age as well as date=Anglian !
Do run queries like artefact=strap end & type=zoomorphic, type=rim & pottery fabric=Crambeck Grey ware or site code=COT93F & material=sandstone.
You don't have to select a value for every field to run a query. For starters try a search on artefact=brooch/comb or type=disc (leave all other fields as they are), select the search button and view the results to get an idea of what the others fields contain and how you might begin to refine your search.
N.B. Only the COT89F flints are listed in this database. Details of COT93F flints can be found in the level III report in the archive.
All of this data and more can be downloaded for import and query in your own software from the digital archive of this publication available via the ADS website.
