Archaeology in Hillingdon

Hillingdon's archaeological remains are an important local and national resource.

Archaeology contributes positively to the quality of life, character and distinctiveness of local communities. It can attract interest, promote community involvement and provide a sense of local and national identity.

Records of archaeological finds are held within the Greater London Historic Environment Record, maintained by Historic England. For advice on archaeological matters, you can contact the Greater London Archaeological Advisory Service. Historic England also has Archaeological Archives, which you may find useful. 

As part of the adoption of the Local Plan Part 2, the council has identified a number of Archaeological Priority Areas (APA) and Archaeological Priority Zones (APZ), which are outlined below. They can also be viewed on the Heritage asset map.
