Archaeology and development - a good practice guide to managing risk and maximising benefit (C672)

This guide provides the development sector with a unified accessible source of independent and practical advice and information regarding archaeology, drawing on the array of existing guidance. It is illustrated by a series of case studies showing good practice, and a few cautionary examples of less well-planned events that have led to difficulties both for developers and the archaeological heritage. This good practice guidance has been written for clients, designers and investors, and for all members of the professional teams, including archaeologists, involved with development and construction dealing with sites of known or potential archaeological interest.
