Building on the Past by Greg McGill
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Fierce conflicts can arise between developers and those who wish to protect archaeological remains. Uncertainty over the issues and misunderstanding of each other's positions are exacerbated by a lack of knowledge of planning and environmental controls. This comprehensive guide provides planners, developers, architects and archaeologists with an analysis of the conflicts between the archaeological development and planning processes. Writing in a highly readable style, the author: defines how legislation is used to protect archaeological remains; explains the nature of risk as well as the duties and concerns of all involved; examines the impact of archaeology on development costs; and clarifies how construction contracts are used to address archaeology. Above all this book takes a pragmatic approach to the effects of archaeology on development, enabling practitioners to reach practical solutions where archaeological considerations are taken into account in the development process.
