Shortland, Andrew J., Masters, Peter, Harrison, Karl, Williams, Anna and Boston, Ceridwen (2008) Burials of eighteenth-century Naval personnel: preliminary results from excavations at the Royal Hospital Haslar, Gosport (Hants). Antiquity, 82 (317). ISSN 0003-598X

The Centre for Archaeological and Forensic Analysis (CAFA) has started historical background research supported by a series of excavations on the site of the burial grounds of the Royal Hospital Haslar in Gosport, on the Hampshire coast of southern England. The work is part of a wider Land Quality Assessment in partnership with Defence Estates, an arm of the Ministry of Defence, who are forming plans for the future of the Hospital site when it ceases to be operational in 2009 or 2010. The nature and extent of the Haslar burial grounds is significant as they will fundamentally affect any future plans for the property.
