THE county's archaeology service has been recognised as one of the best after an inspection at a mid-Norfolk museum.
Norfolk Landscape Archaeology offices at Gressenhall came under scrutiny in May when inspectors from the National Institute for Archaeologists examined the work it does.
Following a day of in-depth examinations and staff interviews by the inspection panel, Norfolk Landscape Archaeology has now been recognised as one of the institute's prestigious registered organisations.
County archaeologist David Gurney said: “This is a significant achievement. They looked at just about everything we do, including the Norfolk Historic Environment Record, archaeology and planning, the identification and recording service for archaeological finds, our national mapping programme project on aerial photographs and our regional publication East Anglian Archaeology.”
