Notes on the Brian Hartley archive

Scope and Content

Brian Hartley undertook rescue excavations at Slack along the projected line of the M62 motorway in two seasons 1968 and 1969.

This work was never published by him but Elizabeth Hartley released the archive and the collection of artefacts to HDAS so that a summary of the 1968-69 work could be published as an appendix to BAR620 - The Romans in Huddersfield - A New Assessment (2015)

This box contains a summary of the contents and working notes of its analysis before the complete archive was transferred in 2013 to Paul Bidwell at Arbeia Roman fort in South Shields.

The box contains a folder of correspondence concerning the archive and the electronic data base in the HDAS archive retains pdf copies of many of the key drawings and details of the photographs
