Scheduling Selection Guide

This selection guide offers an overview of the sorts of archaeological monument or site associated with culture and entertainment which are likely to be deemed to have national importance, and for which scheduling may be appropriate. Such sites range from amphitheatres to racing circuits; from deer parks to mazes. It aims to do two things: to place these scheduled monuments within their historical context, and to give an introduction to the designation approaches which are employed.

There is inevitably some overlap with listing, which is covered in a parallel (but separate) selection guide. This guide does not cover all categories of asset within this area: scheduling is concerned with the protection of sites, so important objects removed from their context are not covered, nor are sites or activities which have left no physical evidence in the landscape.
