Designation Scheduling Selection Guide
This selection guide offers an overview of the sorts of archaeological monument or site associated with agriculture (including husbandry) which are likely to be deemed to have national importance, and for which of those scheduling may be appropriate. It aims to do two things: to set these within their historical context, and to give an introduction to the designation approaches employed.
This selection guide is supported by the Introductions to Heritage Assets: Water Meadows guidance.
