ADDING VALUE

Project highlights

Society is constantly changing and evolving. Our projects add value by enabling a better future to be created on the foundations of past achievements.

New infrastructure – roads or renewable energy – new housing (or re-purposing of existing buildings), may all impact on the historic environment. Our role is to manage the interface between old and new, understanding and protecting archaeology and cultural heritage to enable sustainable development.

Please have a look at some project highlights to see how we have achieved this for different clients in a variety of circumstances.

Resources

Over the last 40 years our project work has given us an unparalleled knowledge of the Clwyd-Powys region and archaeology across both England and Wales. As well as the cumulative knowledge provided by locally-focussed projects, we have also undertaken a series of pan-regional studies of historic landscapes, settlements and churches.
