The EngLaId (‘English Landscape and Identities’) project analyses change and continuity in the English landscape from the middle Bronze Age (c. 1500 BC) to the Domesday survey (c. 1086 AD). Funded by the European Research Council at the University Oxford, the project started in October 2011 and will continue for 5 years. Working in close partnership with English Heritage, the British Museum, the Portable Antiquities Scheme and the Archaeological Data Service, the project combines a mass of existing artefactual and mapping data from – amongst others – EH’s National
 Mapping Programme (NMP), the PAS, the ADS and county HERs (Historic Environment Records). This is the first time that landscape and archaeological features, together with finds, will be analysed on such a comprehensive scale over such an extended time period. It provides an excellent opportunity to understand the development of the English landscape and the identities of the people who inhabited it from a long-term perspective.
