Nuclear weapons' testing, mineral extraction industries and nuclear power generation are among the activities which have led to radioactively contaminated land. In the United Kingdom (UK), current activities such as the decommissioning of nuclear licensed sites and the sale of Ministry of Defence land require that the legislation, remediation and management of radioactively contaminated land be addressed. With an emphasis on the UK, this paper reviews potential management/remediation strategies for radioactively contaminated land, including consideration of the environmental mobility of potentially important radionuclides
