Quo vadis? What next for British archaeology?

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


The British departure from the European Union has created unprecedented economic uncertainty for the UK, regardless of one’s political viewpoint. As the UK enters a transition period, and the future trade relationship with the EU is being defined, it was perhaps harder than ever to predict what the future holds – even before the emergence of Coronavirus. Outlining the ways in which British and European protections for the historic environment have evolved in parallel, if not often hand-in-hand, offers a glimmer of hope for the future, assuming the economy and political cohesion of the UK can continue to support these protections.
