Fieldwork

Archaeology Wales provides a full range of fieldwork services, working on behalf of clients to identify, assess and mitigate the impact of proposed developments on surviving archaeological remains. Our aim is always to identify and to deal with potential issues as early as possible, thereby avoiding unnecessary costs and delays.

Our teams of field archaeologists have experience in dealing with wide variety of different development scenarios, ranging from full excavation strategies that remove all archaeological remains before the start of groundworks, to targeted strategies where Watching Brief archaeologists work alongside construction workers.

We can deploy large teams where required, led by experienced Project Officers and supported by Supervisors, Assistant Supervisors, and experienced archaeologists, while at the other end of the spectrum our Watching Brief archaeologists draw on considerable knowledge of local conditions and different site types.

All our field staff receive extensive training in health, safety and environmental management and they all have CSCS cards (Construction Skills Certificate Scheme). We are Acclaim accredited and always put safety first.
