The Stonehenge & Avebury WHS Research Framework provides a united historic environment research agenda and strategy for the Stonehenge & Avebury World Heritage Site.


The two parts of the World Heritage Site historically had separate research frameworks that were created at different times and in different formats.  A project funded by Historic England and delivered by Wessex Archaeology to create a united Research Framework was completed in 2016. 

The Avebury and Stonehenge Archaeological & Historical Research Group (ASAHRG) also played a key role in this work.
