The global property market represents one of the most significant catalysts for archaeological investigation, in the UK alone over 90% of archaeological material is derived from development-led projects. While this represents a significant opportunity for both developer and the legislative authority to incorporate heritage assets into their programme of works, mitigation can have a significant impact upon land development costs. The best way to manage such risks is to have access to expert advice from an early stage.
Residential development remains one of the largest drivers of archaeological investigation in the UK and Europe
