Archaeology trowel


The Diocesan Archaeological Policy is a general introduction to managing archaeology, both above and below ground, around your church and churchyard.

The Diocesan Archaeological Assessment is intended to assist PCCs, their agents and the DAC in the consideration of the possible archaeological implications of works proposed to church buildings and churchyards and to inform any following archaeological and design requirements. It will also help PCCs in the preparation of Statements of Significance for their churches.
