Borras Quarry, Wrexham

Long-term monitoring, survey and excavation of a complex prehistoric landscape during large-scale gravel extraction. Significant Neolithic and Bronze Age finds and features, with minimal disruption for the client.

Knockin, Shropshire

A series of mitigation projects for a major regional housebuilder revealed new evidence for the development of the settlement, suggesting that the medieval planned town laid out around a castle was short-lived.
