Working with Others to Protect the Historic Environment
We support and actively work with a number of key partnerships:
The Archaeology Forum – a grouping of independent bodies concerned with archaeology in the UK. Through the Forum, the CBA also provides support for the All Party Parliamentary Archaeology Group whose aim is to further an understanding of archaeology across all parties in Parliament and promote archaeology and archaeological education.
Heritage Link - an umbrella group formed by non-governmental organisations in the heritage sector.
The Joint Committee of National Amenity Societies, - the six national societies (of which the CBA is one) with a statutory role in advising on the preservation of built cultural heritage.
We work closely with other environmental organisations, such as the National Trust, and the Council for the Protection of Rural England, to bring about better understanding of the links between the natural environment and the historic environment. Our partnership in Wildlife and Countryside Link brings us together with 40 of the UK’s leading environmental voluntary organisations in the UK united by their common interest in the conservation and enjoyment of the natural and historic environment. This complements the work of Archaeology Scotland (formerly CSA) with Scottish Environment Link, and CBA Wales with Wales Environment Link. We are also represented in Northern Ireland Environment Link and the Northern Ireland Archaeology Forum.
Providing a Forum
The CBA has an important role in providing a forum for discussion of views on a wide range of historic environment conservation issues. In particular we have a key role in supporting a number of specialist committees including the Joint Nautical Archaeology Policy Committee and the Standing Conference on Portable Antiquities as well as from time to time convening meetings, workshops, seminars and conferences to examine particular themes or issues.
