Summary

The archaeological heritage management cycle (after Willems 1997). The figures indicate how the projects (1-6) of the Archaeology Knowledge Kit programme relate to different parts of the cycle: 1. Predictions in Layers; 2. Mapping Disturbances; 3. Maps in Abundance; 4. Prospection Best Practice; 5. National Archaeological Research Agenda 2.0; 6. Valletta Harvest (Lauwerier 2017, 15)

With the aim of providing knowledge for informed choices, a series of tools have been developed for archaeological heritage management in the Netherlands. They include maps, datasets, methods, guidelines, best practice and web-based applications to facilitate the effective and efficient selection of valuable archaeological remains. The products relate to archaeological predictive modelling, disturbances by agriculture and other activities, archaeological heritage maps, prospection methods, research questions and scientific syntheses to close the archaeological heritage management cycle.
