Archaeology in Birmingham
Shortcut to this page www.birmingham.gov.uk/archaeology
Birmingham's archaeological remains are recognised for their national importance and we work to protect them through the planning process. This work has changed our view of Birmingham's past and uncovered new information about the origins of the city.
When dealing with proposals for development which may affect archaeological remains, the Council considers:
· Existing archaeological information on the Historic Environment Record
· National policies and government guidance on the protection of archaeological remains
· The City Council's own policies which are more specific to Birmingham
· The City Council's Archaeology Strategy which gives more guidance
· Requirements for assessing archaeological implications of a development and for the protection and recording of archaeological remains
The locations of sites in the Historic Environment Record are now available on our LocalView mapping system. Follow the link and type your post code into the search box in the top left corner.
Please note that you will require more detailed information than the site locations if your enquiry is related to proposed development
