This advice is for developers, owners, archaeologists and planners
working on projects where the intention is to retain and protect
archaeological sites beneath or within the development. It can also
be read in relation to other land-use or site management work. It
has a particular focus on decision-taking on waterlogged
archaeological sites. The emphasis throughout is on the benefits
gained, both to sustainable development and the archaeological
resource from understanding: * the significance and current state
of preservation of the archaeological material * the potential
development impacts of the proposed scheme * (in relation to sites
containing waterlogged archaeological remains) the availability and
quality of water necessary to sustain the long-term future of those
sites. It also highlights the likely range of information needed to
fully assess these issues and the benefits of pre-application
discussion and assessment to promote a viable way forward for
sustainable development on what can often be complex sites. Whilst
particular sections of this document are focused on waterlogged
archaeological sites, the core themes within this advice note, of
prior preservation and impact assessment are relevant to all sites.
Additional methodological detail and technical advice is provided
in the appendices.
