BAJR Short Guides for Archaeology

To promote archaeology and standards within both the profession and amateur organisations and individuals, BAJR has worked with specialists in a number of fields to produce simple to use guides to several key aspects of archaeological work and standards. These range from guides to archaeology in the planning process, health and safety in archaeology and employment rights in archaeology to short explanations of GPS, geophysics, osteology, fieldwalking, survey, metal detecting (including recording), aerial photography and marine archaeology. Many more of these guides are planned including recording historic buildings, building standards in the planning process, excavation, battlefield archaeology, onsite conservation. These guides are not intended to supplant the current documents, which they reference as the main source of information, but, are designed as easy to read introductions to these subjects.

By promoting standards and ensuring that breaches of the IFA Code of conduct and
associated Guidance documents are brought to their attention, it is hoped that all archaeological contractors will ensure Best Practice as standard. In addition, it is expected that amateur and hobby groups will maintain similar rigorous standards and therefore protect our shared archaeological resource.
