Rural land use
EAA and EAC Joint Working Group on Farming, Forestry and Rural Land Management
This Working Group is a joint group of Europae Archaeologiae Consilium and the European Association of Archaeologists (EAA).
The purpose of the group is to improve understanding and management of the impacts on the historic environment of farming, forestry and those forms of rural land management which lie beyond the remit of the spatial planning systems of European member countries.
The group was established at the 10th Annual Meeting of the EAA held in September 2004 at Lyon and was adopted as a working group of EAC in March 2009.
At Arbury Banks Northamptonshire, ploughing has destroyed medieval ridge and furrow earthworks overlying an Iron Age fortification and is eroding the underlying site.
