Archaeological preliminary researchIn the development process of environmental planning projects, the possibility of encountering objects of structures of archaeological or historical value needs to be taken into account. Therefore, by law there ar procedures that need to be followed (in the Netherlands this is the AMK-cyclus, to be found in the Kwaliteitsnorm Nederlandse Archeologie 3.3).
In recent years the awareness of the remains of the Second World War (WWII) being a part of our cultural heritage has grown. Archaeological research into this period is increasingly taking place, often combined with UXO investigation. The combination of these investigation starts in the preliminary phase. Information from the historical UXO investigation can be usefull for the archaological research and vice versa. Since both investigations are performed in the same place, important information is shared quickly and efficiently.
