Glossary of terms

We have compiled two Glossaries of relevant terms to help you identify and name what you discover in the field. These terms are taken from the RCAHMS thesaurus and a fuller list is available on the RCAHMS website. You can download our Glossary on buildings and architectural features here and on agricultural settlements and landscapes here.
