New agreement to protect England's archaeology

English Heritage and the Highways Agency have signed a new memorandum of understanding designed to protect the country's archaeology.

The agreement, signed by Highways Agency chief executive, Archie Robertson, and English Heritage chief executive, Simon Thurley, builds on an existing agreement signed in 1993 and signals the start of closer co-ordination between the two agencies.

Not really sure what the significance of this is.
