Archaeological assessments and evaluations are normally undertaken as part of the planning process, and may form the Cultural Heritage section of an Environmental Impact Assessment. An assessment is likely to comprise several stages of investigation, designed to identify the potential of the cultural heritage, and assist with the formulation of appropriate mitigation strategies. Depending on the nature and location of the proposed development, the assessment could include some or all of the following: desk-based study; field survey; geophysical survey; topographical survey; evaluation; reporting and mitigation.
