What Protection do they Have?
English Heritage takes the lead in identifying sites in England which should be placed on the schedule by the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport. A schedule, or list, has been kept since 1882 of monuments whose preservation is given priority over other land uses. The current legislation, the Ancient Monuments and Archaeological Areas Act 1979, supports a formal system of 'Scheduled Monument Consent' for any work to a designated monument.
Scheduling is the only legal protection specifically for archaeological sites.
