This introduction to the structure and context of archaeology in Britain reviews the vital issues facing archaeologists during a period in which the discipline has become increasingly complicated and diverse. The authors offer an analysis of the crucial questions of principle and practice that have arisen. In particular, they examine the implications for the archaeological profession of heritage management and legislation, stricter planning controls, changing land use, and the pressure of public interest and concern. Detailed consideration is given to the national database, the state of legislation on ancient monuments and portable antiquities, and archaeological aspects of planning policy and the preservation of standing buildings. An extensive section concentrates on the operation of professional archaeology and on the problems confronting archaeologists in the field. Individual chapters are devoted to the growth and management of archaeological units and trusts, to research design and consultancy, and to the presentation of archaeology to the public. This wide-ranging coverage of the subject should make the title a useful handbook for field archaeologists, archaeology students and heritage managers in Britain. Planners concerned with archaeological remains and managers responsible for cultural and natural resources should also find the title a useful source of reference.
