We provide specialist archaeological services focusing on geoarchaeolgy and archaeological geophysics, working to guidelines issued by Historic England and the Chartered Institute for Archaeologists.

Geoarchaeological desk-based assessment and deposit modelling:

Geoarchaeology provides a landscape-centred assessment of palaeoenvironmental and archaeological potential and can be key in identifying archaeological risk to a project at an early stage. Deposit modelling increasingly plays an important role in predicting areas of high potential which need further investigation.

Terrestrial geophysical survey:

Geophysical surveys are a cost-effective and non-intrusive method of assessing archaeological potential for planning requirements. We can provide small scale geophysical surveys using magnetic (gradiometer) and resistivity (earth resistance) techniques.

Watching briefs:

Watching briefs are carried out while groundworks are underway and ensure archaeological remains are identified, investigated and recorded prior to development. A watching brief is often a planning condition on sites that have demonstrated archaeological potential through previous investigation.
