Since SHARP began its research at Sedgeford, an exciting picture has emerged of human activity within the parish, dating back to the Late Neolithic/Early Bronze Age and which continues up to the First World War. Throughout the project’s research, its main focal point has been around the Anglo-Saxon period. It is here where our archaeological research has delivered an amazing insight into everyday life during this important period of British history.
SHARP (the Sedgeford Historical and Archaeological Research Project) is a long-term, independently-run archaeological project.

The Sedgeford Historical and Archaeological Research Project (SHARP) is a long-term, multi-period, multi-disciplinary research project. Its primary objective is to investigate human settlement and land usage in the Norfolk parish of Sedgeford.
Recent and ongoing work encompasses multiple sites, including a large scale excavation of an Anglo-Saxon settlement and cemetery to the investigation of the site of the original village.
Now in it’s 16th year, SHARP is one of the largest independent archaeological projects in Britain. Rooted in the local community, the project is democratic, innovative and believes in making archaeology more accessible to everyone.
