How does PPS5 change the way we view the archaeology of the last 200 years?
London is largely a 19th and 20th-century city, yet until comparatively recently, the below-ground
archaeology of the last two hundred years was dismissed as ‘modern disturbance’, and its built
heritage viewed as a seemingly endless resource. The scope for a greater understanding of thisperiod has been recently
provided by the more holistic approach to ‘heritage assets’ offered by
Planning Policy Statement 5 (PPS5). This document has brought planning policy up to date withpractice, eliminating the artificial separation between buried remains and above-ground archaeology,and brought about a focus on the idea that understanding the significance of a site or a landscapeplays a role in its investigation, recording, and dissemination.This CPD opportunity is aimed at professionals who define the significance of these assets, areengaged with the planning process, and carry out fieldwork and research in the historic environment;namely representatives from national heritage agencies, Local Authority planning and conservationofficers, archaeological curators, consultants, contractors and community archaeologists.Through the presentation of short position papers by individuals engaged in every step of thearchaeological process, this seminar will stimulate livel
y discussion about how London’s relatively
recent past is understood, and provide a step forward in the development of working methods and
standards that take account of London’s diversity
within the PPS5 framework.We will address key questions about the way in which sites are recognised, researched, recordedand ultimately disseminated whilst highlighting the diverse approaches that can be employed for
London’s historic environment
for the last two hundred years.
: The attendance fee for delegates is £25; £15 for students and unwaged delegates.This includes tea and coffee breaks at the museum, and a buffet lunch at the Ledger Building pub,next to the venue. Certificates of attendance will be provided to all registered delegates.
