Example Archaeological Strategy

The Royal Parks recognises the importance played by the historic environment in the development, understanding and enjoyment of the Parks.

The Royal Parks, their employees and sub-contractors will protect and enhance the historic environment, through active engagement and use of the archaeological mapping tools available and give due consideration to the potential effects their works may have on the historic environment.

The historic environment is a finite resource which requires appropriate measures to ensure its preservation for this and future generations.

The Royal Parks aspires to be at the forefront in protecting and promoting the historic environment within their Parks.

About the Royal Parks

Millions of Londoners and tourists visit the eight Royal Parks for free each year. The 5,000 acres of historic parkland provide unparalleled opportunities for enjoyment, exploration and healthy living in the heart of the capital. A simple walk or a picnic in the park, sport, top quality entertainment, community and education projects - all waiting for you.

The Royal Parks manages these spaces and almost everything in them. We conserve the parks to ensure future generations can enjoy them too.
