You may have noticed my britarch query struggling to get through the horses head and metal detectors. unsurprisinglyy i received zero helpful replies. So i thought of you! would you have any leads for articles/publications/mentions of approximately how much of the Heritage Lottery is allocated to archaeological projects? I know it is miniscule (at least prior to 2000 when the 'Heritage Incentives' and 'Awards for All' grants were established) because i read that in something that i have since (frustratingly) misplaced.
any ideas?

I think you will find that the Lootery as I call give a lot to archaeology both directly and indirectly. Indirectly via paying for archaeological projects associated with other developments and HE projects. There are all the archive digitisation projects - there will soon be a plan of every Church in England on the net and things like Images of England.

The info should be on the Heritage Memorial Fund web site.
