PRESS RELEASE Standards & guidance in Northern Ireland

In line with the recommendation of Archaeology 2030:  A Strategic Approach for NI this project focuses on the review of Standards and guidance in Northern Ireland including those published by CIfA and the Institute of Archaeologists of Ireland (IAI).
