evaluation and excavation

One of the most informative ways to establish whether archaeological remains are likely to be present on a site is by trial trench evaluation. This usually involves opening trenches by machine to the top of either archaeological or undisturbed natural levels, and any archaeological features or deposits are then carefully investigated by hand, characterised and recorded. A report on the findings is then produced and can be used to support planning applications or help inform planning decisions.


Sometimes an excavation will be required to essentially preserve any archaeological remains on site by record, and we can also assist with this type of project.
