Before the commencement of many development activities, It may be necessary to salvage archaeological sites or objects. Salvage is most often undertaken in accordance with strict approvals compliance conditions and may have a range of complex stakeholder requirements. As this is commonly the final stage in cultural heritage assessments, all the necessary scientific and cultural values assessments have usually been undertaken and all necessary approvals will be in place prior to the salvage commencing.
