Introduction

Excavation of Devensian fluvial sediments of the River Bain, near Kirkby on Bain, Lincolnshire

Quarrying and extraction of aggregates on land and at sea affects buried archaeological remains and the historic landscape. Since 2002, substantial sums from the Aggregates Levy Sustainability Fund have been spent on research projects which aim to help the aggregates industry and heritage sector predict where archaeological remains might be and develop ways of mitigating these effects. Focussed on the places and types of archaeological assets which are affected by aggregates extraction, the dividend has been new knowledge and new ways of exploring, understanding, explaining and challenging our thoughts about our past.

This report examines the benefits and impacts of this work.
