Welcome to Berkshire Archaeology - an archaeological advice service for Windsor and Maidenhead, Reading, Bracknell Forest, Slough and Wokingham.
Berkshire Archaeology was established in 2004, as part of Reading Borough Council's museum service. We offer a range of archaeological services across the five authorities. Please choose from the menu on the left for more information on:
- Historic Environment Record
- Planning and development control
- Site conservation and management
- Public archaeology
We run Open House sessions - you can drop in to consult the Historic Environment Record or discuss any aspects of archaeology in our area on Thursdays, 12 - 4pm, Reading Central Library (Third Floor).
Taking Archaeology forward
We are currently working to produce a development plan for Berkshire Archaeology, to outline our plans, forthcoming projects, and ideas for future work.

We welcome input from residents of the five authorities and from community groups with an interest in heritage. If you would like to have your say on how archaeology should be managed in your area then please contact us.
