About Northamptonshire Archaeological Resource Centre

The Northamptonshire Archaeological Resource Centre (ARC) is a state-of-the-art facility that acts as the publicly accessible archaeological archive store for the county. Collections currently consist of over 20,000 boxes of archaeological material from around 3,000 sites across Northamptonshire with space for another 15,000 boxes from future excavations. The archives cover the whole breadth of human occupation within Northamptonshire, from prehistory up to the late 19th century.

The archives will be stored in humidity and temperature controlled rooms where objects are kept in their ideal environmental conditions. This ensures that they will be usable for future generations. We have a research room on-site that can be booked by any who wish to study our collections. As part of the project setting up the ARC, the team will be undertaking a substantial project to re-box and catalogue collections to maximise their accessibility.
