Archaeological desk-based assessment

This is required if your project either:

  • will take place within or near to an Area of High Archaeological Potential
  • has any archaeological interest

If there is not enough evidence for a desk-based assessment and the site is over 0.4ha in area, a field evaluation will be required.
