    For all the latest archaeology news, dig reports and finds analysis, read History Scotland magazine. These included tree throwsand and a possible pit, This will be within a specified area or site on land, inter-tidal zone or underwater, where there is a possibility that archaeological deposits may be disturbed or destroyed. Avoiding pre-application consultation in the belief that it will elicit archaeological works that wouldn't otherwise have been asked for, resulting in a last minute scramble to get the 'evaluation' done within the six week determination period.

    InPPG Planning and the Historic Environment applied the same principle to development and refurbishment projects affecting historic buildings — Listed or not — and PPS5 has amalgamated both into a single statutory instrument. It consisted of two courses for the majority of its exposed length, and measured approximately 2. PPG16 was brutally simple and poorly explained: Disturbance of archaeological remains is an economic 'externality' — i. These works should be undertaken under archaeological supervision.

    The LPA simply needs to know whether there are any archaeological remains within the site: the applicant also needs to know how much it will cost to fully excavate and analyse those remains BEFORE detailed design and cost planning commences. In most cases, formal 'stand alone' desk studies are a waste of time and money, except when used explicitly to inform the design of subsequent site investigations. We are adequately insured to cover all eventualities, including risks to third parties. In British archaeology a Watching Brief is a method of preserving archaeological remains by record in the face of development threat.

Furthermore, most local plans identify areas of 'Higher Archaeological Potential' and many LPAs have published supplementary planning guides explaining exactly how and where the process will be applied.

The work was carried out over two days, during 6th and 7th November Only one feature was located in the south-west corner of the stripped area. Society of Museum Selection, retention and dispersal of Archaeologists archaeological collections.

This particular watching brief predated the introduction of National Planning Policies, which now control the impact of development upon archaeology. The process and its terminology is also explained in detail in the recent CIRIA guide to archaeology so there is no shortage of guidance.

Two sections were excavated through it which identified significant truncated by later, probably relatively modern activity 6. Watching briefs are also costed on a day rate basis with only the vaguest of estimates for off-site analyses and report preparation: the scope for claims and disputes is enormous.

Ditch group was aligned east-west and also dated to the Late Iron Age. It is the works described in the 'WSI' that have to be completed. This apparently reused material has been dated to Report of archaeological watching brief book post-medieval period, although no later than the 18th century.

However it is generally expected that the finds will be deposited with the archive. Despite the difficulties of archaeological recording during the watching briefs, the recovered artefact assemblage provides valuable evidence for activities taking place in the core of the medieval burgh.

The proposed recipient museum must be contacted at the beginning of the project. Only then is the LPA archaeological officer able to recommend to the planning officers whether the project should continue with or without further 'mitigation' works — i.

This was because there were excellent conditions for organic preservation within the middens and pit fills encountered, which led to the survival of a more diverse range of material and medieval artefact types than would otherwise be expected, including a medieval knife and fork still with their wooden handles, wooden pegs and pins, moss rope, antler offcuts and 68 fragments of leather shoes.

It is not a 'box-ticking' exercise, but one designed to reduce ambiguity in what is an inherently unpredictable undertaking and one that can be managed in the clients' interests, but the cheapest option will not always prove the least expensive or quickest in the long run.

For all the latest archaeology news, dig reports and finds analysis, read History Scotland magazine. These works should be undertaken under archaeological supervision. The medieval pottery recovered during the watching briefs included some examples of vessels in both the local Redware and imported Yorkshire Type wares.

Furthermore, the term, 'archaeological investigations' is intentionally non-specific about the type of works required: that is left to the LPA officer's discretion. A finds recovery and conservation strategy will be agreed with the developer in advance of the project commencing.

The curatorial archaeologist will identify those application sites where there is a possible archaeological constraint and request one or more of several sequential forms of work to inform and support the planning application, or as a condition of consent. The overall form of the fork appears consistent with a use in picking up small food items, while the knife was also probably used at the table for the cutting and presentation of meat.

Elsey does not appear to have been a settlement in the medieval period, although it was the site of a later post-medieval ridge and furrow earthworks in this area HA4 Plates and over the wider area between the railway and High Skibeden, indicating that much of this area was once under arable cultivation.

If archaeological deposits are encountered, then they are to be investigated and fully recorded; this may necessitate a temporary halt to construction works in this part of the site, whilst the investigations and recording are completed. A considerable amount of further modern disturbance and later truncation was identified in Area 2 with several large modern rubbish pits clearly visible.

Believing that submission of a 'written scheme of archaeological investigations' satisfies the LPA's requirements: it does not. Any recording, marking and storage materials will be of archive quality and recording systems must be compatible with the recipient museum.

On domestic scale projects this can be the case, but construction on commercial or constrained urban sites will be complicated by the presence of a team of archaeologists trying to investigate sensitive remains whilst the civils are trying to dig them out.Jan 07,  · 31st annual report of the Canterbury Archaeological Trust 34–6 Houliston, M‘An archaeological watching brief at 8 Vernon Place, Canterbury’ Canterbury’s Archaeology – An archaeological watching brief was carried out by Alba Archaeology (Highland) Ltd for Colin Armstrong Associates on behalf of Mr and Mrs Kirby in regard to a condition of planning as required as part of a planning application.
