This project undertook as study of the archaeological potential of cave and fissure deposits and assessed current protection to such deposits as afforded through the planning process. The study areas included the carboniferous limestone of the Southern Pennines and the southern end of the Magnesian Limestone in Derbyshire, South Yorkshire and Nottinghamshire. Current practice was assessed for the assessment, evaluation and mitigation of the impacts of quarrying on cave and fissure deposits.
