Commercial Sites

Scheduling Selection Guide

This selection guide offers an overview of the sorts of archaeological monument or site associated with commerce which are likely to be deemed to have national importance, and for which of those scheduling may be appropriate. It aims to do two things: to set these within their historical context, and to give an introduction to the designation approaches employed.

A parallel Commerce and Exchange Buildings listing selection guide deals with the selection of structures for listing. General principles dealing with the scheduling of urban areas are treated in the Settlement Sites scheduling selection guide.
