'We believe in providing archaeological services that are dedicated, ethical and progressive in outlook, whilst remaining professional, efficient and highly competitive in delivery.'



We offer planning advice about archaeology and cultural heritage issues related to development proposals. Our consultants provide a high quality of service no matter how tight the deadline.

Our methods for assessing impact on cultural heritage have been approved by national curators. Our senior consultants have the respect of colleagues and they can be relied upon to provide expert, reliable testimony at planning inquiries.

Through systematically examining historic maps, aerial photographs, cultural heritage databases and other archive sources, we can build up a profile of a development site's archaeological potential and the likely impact of any mitigation upon a development. This makes it a valuable and cost-effective tool for risk management at an early stage of any development proposal. We provide detailed reports that can support planning applications and influence the scope of mitigation that may be required by the local planning authority archaeologist.
