What does the European Union mean to the archaeology sector?

The Archaeology Forum (TAF), of which CIfA is a member, has produced a short briefing document ahead of the EU Referendum on 23 June, which sets out some of the potential effects that the result of the referendum may have on the sector. The document does not intend to suggest how anyone should vote in the referendum, but does offer some insight into the processes that would be triggered by a vote to leave. These include the possibility that Government would seek to change legislation which is currently derived from Europe (e.g. Environmental Impact Assessment regulations or VAT regulations). The document also discusses EU cultural heritage policies and how they currently operate under the status quo, and how they would be affected by a leave vote.
