Guidelines for conducting large-scale archaeological inventory studies in British Columbia including discussion on research or resource management goals and objectives, description of the past and present physical and cultural landscape of study areas, recommendations on the sampling techniques used in most situations, and reporting and mapping standards.

BC Archaeological Impact Assessment Guidelines
These are technical guidelines, intended for professional consulting archaeologists, which principally apply to development projects reviewable under British Columbia's Environmental Assessment Act. As such, the procedures for archaeological resource assessment and review articulate with the three stage assessment process provided for in that legislation.

Although these guidelines apply mainly to development projects which undergo provincial review, they may also be applied, with minor modification, to all other developments.

These are non-technical guidelines aimed at a lay audience. The Handbook is a summary of the archaeological impact assessment and review process outlined in the Guidelines.
