Building Archaeology Database - BARD

Details of the architectural features of the buildings we record are entered onto a national database. Details can be accessed at

Features can be searched and compared with buildings in other areas around the country. It provides a quick and easy to use method for systematically recording key features in buildings and because many stylistic features have known date ranges this helps to narrow down the likely date of construction.

The easy to access, searchable information provides a ready source of data for further academic research and enquiries are welcome.
