Revised IfA Code of Conduct published.. with ammendments
Ploughsoil IS an archaeological context! Normally its context number (0001) just like topsoil on unploughed sites.
In terms of planning PPS5 states that the LPA should require any archive to be deposited with a local museum.
Also the guidance says that a WSI should include the provision for deposition of archive, and signing over the archive BEFORE a project starts.
This is already a requirement of some LPAs. So archaeologists (in planning based projects in counties such as Lincolnshire, Somerset etc) should not be starting a project without getting agreement to donate the archive as it would b e contrary to the LPA requirements (all this excludes Treasure Finds of course).
