We are delighted to announce that we have a new formal ally – FAME, the Federation of Archaeological Managers and Employers, who we work with to deliver the annual Archaeological Market Survey report. We are pleased that by being recognised as one of FAME’s partners we are strengthening our ongoing working relationship with the trade association for archaeological businesses in the UK.
Kenneth Aitchison has joined the Heritage Management Organization as Head of Capability Mapping. He will continue to work as Executive Director of Landward Research Ltd while developing new initiatives with the Heritage Management Organization, the first of which is the Discovering the Archaeologists of Africa initiative. He discusses this on the HMO blog.
The Heritage Management Organization (HERITAGE) was established in November 2008 with the goal of enabling key heritage managers, through targeted training, to independently transform heritage assets from decaying objects of study to dynamic sources of learning, community identity and economic development.
The Heritage Management Organization trains professionals in the management of heritage sites, independently of project specifics. Training practitioners in the essential skills and best practices which define heritage management is at the heart of the HERITAGE mission.
The Market Research Society has published a Best Practice Guide to Buying Research and Insight.
This publication guides the buyers or commissioners of market research through the process for procuring high-quality insight.
The guide includes best practice specifications and project roadmaps, answering questions such as:
- what does good market research look like?
- how is research and insight a distinct buying category?
- what standards and compliance should be met?

Landward Research Ltd are delighted to have worked with the South Downs National Park Authority to produce
as part of the Secrets of the High Woods programme.
Coralie Mills of Dendrochronicle and Gordon Brown of John Clegg & Co worked with Doug Rocks-Macqueen to write these guidelines, which Landward Research Ltd are very pleased to have published on behalf of SDNPA. Quonya Huff designed the publication, which showcases Landward’s expertise in working collaboratively at the interface between heritage and natural environment.
These guidelines have been produced as a consequence of an idea which developed during the Secrets of the High Woods project, as described by Ian McConnell in the recently published Secrets of the High Woods project book (McConnell in Manley 2016). That is, to engage with local foresters and land managers to make them aware of the newly discovered archaeological resources within their estates so that the potential impacts of forestry activities on those resources could be mitigated in practical ways. These guidelines are the result of consultation with those foresters and land managers of the wooded estates.
The document briefly reviews the Secrets of the High Woods project, legislation, standards & guidance surrounding forestry management and the archaeology of the area. The appendices cover these topics in greater depth. The heart of the guidelines covers how to obtain archaeological advice and how resources, like Historic Environment Records, are available to support the protection of heritage assets. Furthermore, it presents several case studies from the South Downs that highlight best practice being undertaken in forestry work to avoid damaging cultural heritage assets.
