Excavation

excavation

The results of archaeological testing or monitoring can sometimes uncover sub-surface archaeological deposits or features. This can give rise to an excavation whereby the archaeology is preserved by record as all features are dug out by hand and a written and photographic record is kept of each deposit and cut-feature.

Alison McQueen & Associates provides a full excavation service from initial identification to final resolution and report writing. A strategy is established prior to commencement in order for work to proceed efficiently and to be completed according to agreed deadlines. This maximises time and labour, delivering the best possible service to our clients without compromising the archaeological heritage.
