The Borough of Doncaster contains a rich archaeological and historical heritage reflecting its long history of settlement. In some cases the historic town centres have been continuously occupied since the Roman Period and are a major archaeological resource whilst evidence is growing of the extensive early settlement in the rural areas of the Borough.
If you are planning a development it pays to seek archaeological advice from the Council's advisers, the South Yorkshire Archaeology Service.
