Excavation

We have extensive experience of archaeological excavation and have carried out several major excavations prior to development (see projects). We excavate sites and features found during archaeological monitoring on roadways, drainage schemes, underwater schemes, housing developments, etc., or sites identified through trial testing and geophysical survey. Features are fully recorded by careful excavation, elements being systematically described by context with planning to OS datum and photography at all stages. The results of the excavation are written up in full reports with all descriptions referring to scaled drawings.

Though excavation is a major source of information for the archaeological profession and the public in general, it can be a costly and time consuming venture for the developer. We place great emphasis on the time and cost management of excavation and monitoring schemes, anticipating problems at an early stage and developing strategies to ensure that programmes are adhered to.

Post excavation work is an important part of the project and again, clear programmes are developed to manage the production of the full report with specialist analysis. Every effort is made to publish the findings of our excavations.
