CIfA is working with DigVentures to develop guidance which supports and enables public benefit from archaeological projects, as part of a project funded by Historic England. This project aims to embed public participation and engagement firmly into sector practice, with an initial emphasis on archaeology projects delivered within the context of the planning system. The main target audience for the guidance is those who commission, facilitate, or deliver archaeology projects primarily driven by development led activities, but this also includes industrial archaeology and heritage sites.
This short survey forms part of a sector-wide consultation undertaken collaboratively with CIfA. Our aim is to understand the opportunities and challenges in implementing public benefit within development-led archaeology. The two surveys are aimed at two different audience groups; one for those who commission archaeology, including those who prepare project briefs, and the other directed towards project delivery teams.
If you a commissioner or if you facilitate archaeological projects, please take this survey.
If you are a practitioner involved in the delivery of archaeological projects, please take this survey.
The survey will be live until the end of January 2023. In the meantime, get in touch with the project team directly if you are interested in hearing more about the project.
Please get in touch with Harriet Tatton (DigVentures – firstname.lastname@example.org) if you have questions about the survey or have any technical difficulties. Please get in touch with Cara Jones (CIfA – email@example.com) if you have questions about the scope of the project
