Excavation Licenses indicate continued reduction in archaeological and construction a - BAJR - 13th January 2012

Archaeological Licenses indicate that in 2011 archaeological activity in Ireland continued to contract for the fifth year.
Figures provided by the National Monuments Service indicate that the total number of archaeological excavation licenses issued for the year 2011 was 558. This is a reduction of 19.6% from the 694 licenses issued in 2010 and indicates that both archaeological investigations and the construction activity that they relate to have continued to decline. This represents a drop of 73% from the peak of archaeological activity in 2006.
