Watching Brief

An archaeological watching brief is usually required if ground disturbance is to take place in an area previously highlighted as an area of potential archaeological significance by a desk-based assessment or following an archaeological evaluation.

A watching brief is the monitoring of groundworks as part of a mitigation exercise to record any features or finds of cultural heritage significance that may be revealed with limited disruption.
