This document is a discursive starting point to help archaeologists develop awareness of ethical issues in the profession. It examines what ethics are and what comprises ethical behaviours, and then illustrates the generalities with some specific case studies relevant to archaeology. If at any point the reader has doubt over the legal position arising from a situation, they should seek independent legal advice.
