Developments in measuring the acoustic characteristics of concert halls and opera houses are leading to standardized methods of impulse response capture for a wide variety of auralization applications. This work extends and develops these methods to non-traditional performance venues and examines how objective acoustic parameter analysis can be applied in the field of acoustic archaeology. An initial study of selected archaeological sites in the UK is presented, each site demonstrating some feature of interest in terms of its acoustic characteristics. The resulting database of measurements has a particular use in convolution based reverberation, and an acoustic analysis of the impulse responses provides an additional insight as to the characteristics and construction of these spaces.
