The project comprised an archaeological resource assessment of the aggregate producing areas of Bath and North-East Somerset (BANES). It was undertaken by Museum of London Archaeology in partnership with BANES District Council in 2010 and 2012, with funding from the Aggregates Levy Sustainability Fund, as administered by English Heritage. The aim of the project is to improve knowledge of the archaeological resource within all past, present and potential future aggregate producing areas in BANES, through the enhancement and analysis of the BANES Historic Environment Record (HER). The study will assist in strategic planning decisions regarding future aggregate extraction, the management of buried heritage assets, and the setting out of research agenda aims and appropriate archaeological mitigation strategies where archaeological assets are under threat of removal by quarrying. The project is also intended to increase public, industry and other stakeholders' awareness of archaeological remains within aggregate geology areas.
