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.
