Archaeological excavation is a programme of controlled, intrusive fieldwork with defined objectives which investigates, records and interprets archaeological deposits, features and structures within a specified site.
The records made and objects gathered during fieldwork are studied and the results of that study published in detail appropriate to the project design. Archaeological excavation is often termed ‘preservation by record’ and is the final stage of mitigation for that site.
All archaeological excavations managed by Parker Planning Services will comply with the Chartered Institute for Archaeologists and Historic England Codes of Conduct.
