The Association provides a forum representing archaeologists working for local authorities and national parks throughout the UK. Its members are senior professional archaeologists employed by local authorities to provide advice on archaeological conservation and management.
The range of interest of ALGAO members embraces all aspects of the historic environment including archaeology, built environment and historic landscapes. The Association, through the component national associations, and subject and (in England) regional committees, co-ordinates and presents members' views on a wide range of interests.
The Countryside Stewardship Manual has been published on GOV.UK.
Due to the short timescale for submission of the Countryside Stewardship Higher Tier Expression of Interest form, Natural England have extended the submission deadline.
The Heritage Lottery Fund has been liaising with ALGAO members to produce a much welcomed best practice guide on archaeology.
