Sector knowledge: The Historic Environment – Policy & Practice

Journal Summary: The Historic Environment: Policy & Practice is a journal for all those that investigate, conserve and manage the historic environment.  The journal was established in association with the Chartered Institute for Archaeologists.
The journal contains papers relevant to archaeological practitioners, and those involved in building conservation – contractors, consultants, curators, researchers, students and fieldworkers – both professional and voluntary. Content cuts across organisational divisions to identify themes which are of concern and interest to all practitioners.
The Historic Environment: Policy & Practice demonstrates best practice and appropriate methods, and the enhancement of technical and professional skills. The journal relates these skills to topical issues and features the political, legal, economic, cultural, environmental, social and educational contexts, and the academic frameworks, in which those involved in the historic environment work.

The scope includes:

  • Development of skills and competence in archaeology and conservation
  • Best practice approaches to cultural resource management
  • New techniques in the investigation of ancient and recent archaeological sites, landscapes and buildings
  • The relationship between historic sites and past and future environmental change
