Abstract (in English)

In the United Kingdom, in contrast to many other countries, there is no presumption that archaeological sites and monuments will automatically be protected by the State, or indeed, regarded as State property. Instead, monuments belong to the landowner, and only those which are judged to be of national importance can be protected under existing legislation.
