The HSE are to consult on exempting pre-construction archaeological investigation from the definition of ‘construction work’ for the purposes of the new CDM Regulations, they have announced at the FAME Forum.
Following the decision of IfA Council to discontinue making compliance with minimum salary recommendations an absolute requirement of Registered Organisation status, FAME is publishing this statement to set out its position on the issue:
FAME has carried out a survey of undeposited archaeological archives in England, Scotland and Wales. This was in response to the increasing concerns of its many members who hold completed archives that cannot be deposited because there is no store or museum able or willing to accept them.
FAME is participating in a new project to assess the extent and usage of undeposited archaeological archives across the UK.
Thinking of joining FAME? We’re offering new members a great deal – join before 21 April and you’ll get two months free membership – a saving of £50!
Following our joint meeting on undeposited archaeological archives with the Society of Museum Archaeologists, we have agreed with SMA and ALGAO a joint Statement of Intent to begin to address the issue.
The first State of the Archaeological Market survey shows a slight increase in the numbers employed in development-led archaeology in the past six months, though still significantly down on the July 2007 peak.
