South Yorkshire Archaeology Service
The primary role of the South Yorkshire Archaeology Service(SYAS) is to help protect and preserve South Yorkshire’s archaeological heritage. The service provides advice on the management of archaeological sites to Doncaster, Rotherham, Barnsley and Sheffield councils.
SYAS also maintains the Sites and Monuments Record (SMR) and promotes public understanding and appreciation of the local historic environment through an annual Archaeology Day and publication of a regular round-up of recent work, Archaeology in South Yorkshire.
