A field evaluation of a site involves works to the ground. These works will determine whether there is any presence of archaeological features, structures, deposits or artefacts.
If archaeological remains are found, the field evaluation defines what they are and their extent. This would enable an assessment in relation to the significance of the find.
We always recommend that field evaluations are carried out before a planning application is submitted, but they are also sometimes dealt with post planning decision.
