Law and the Historic Environment

6 March 2019

Anybody conducting or planning investigations of the historic environment will be confronted by a wide range of issues that may have legal consequences. This course provides an introduction for all who need to gain a broad understanding of the main legislative, regulatory and policy regimes for the historic environment, the ways in which those regimes are being applied at present, and the implications in practice for those working in the area. The course will cover the law of England and Wales only. Health and Safety law will not be covered in this course.

Course Directors: Nigel Hewitson, Consultant at Gowling WLG, and Roger M Thomas, barrister and archaeologist. Nigel Hewitson was Legal Director of English Heritage from 2001-2006
