This document is part of a series of non-statutory guidance notes about managing change in the historic environment. They explain how to apply the policies in the [Historic Environment Policy for Scotland](https://www.historicenvironment.scot/advice-and-support/planning-and-guidance/historic-environment-policy-for-scotland).

This note provides guidance for anyone considering undertaking archaeological excavation on a scheduled monument when the primary reason is for research purposes.
