Finds, Post-excavation & Community

Archaeology Wales undertakes a wide range of off-site specialist activities, ranging from the processing of finds and environmental samples collected by our fieldwork teams, to the detailed analysis of particular artefact and ecofact types, such as pottery, glass, human bone and pollen. All our specialists are happy to share their knowledge with all those interested in the work we do, so regularly give talks and presentations to local societies, student groups and, of course, groups representing the organisations we work for.

Our post-excavation team is experienced in delivering quality reports on time and to budget. Where external specialist input is required, the work is closely managed and quality controls imposed.

Archaeology Wales is proud of its record in working with local communities, to help them better understand and appreciate the archaeological resources in their areas where they live. We have run community excavations, undertaken geophysical and metal detector surveys, participated in open days and provided literature for community events. All our community-based activities can be delivered in English and Welsh.
