Sites and Monuments Record (SMR)
- the SMR is a comprhensive list compiled by local
authorities of known archaeoligical sites in their areas. The duty to compile an SMR is to an
extent discretionary, and to date English local authorities have been far more rigorous in
compiling them than - with one or two exceptions - their Scottish, Irish and Welsh counterparts.
