By combining the information in the Leeds documentary archive with records of excavation sites and artefacts held in the museum, it has been possible to establish the history of a number of the Leeds objects.

You can see more of the artefacts from sites excavated by Leeds by looking at Anglo-Saxon Oxfordshire or case studies of some other sites he excavated.
