The North York Moors has thousands of archaeological sites and monuments which date from the first human occupation of this region to 19th and 20th century industrial and military remains. Many of these sites are hard to recognize and are vulnerable to damage from a wide range of operations. Over 800 sites, assessed as being of national importance, are legally protected as Scheduled Monuments.

Free help and advice on archaeological remains is available from the National Park Authority.
