SAMPLE REPORTS

Reports are usually sent in draft electronically and followed up with a printed copy. A compact disc is provided with the report and the data saved in various ways to enable it to be further processed at a later date and to be archived by the client.

Please note sometimes that locational detail is omitted from surveys on our website to seek to protect the remains. 

Short Report

This type is usually done to quickly report on findings which can influence further work.  This type is often submitted to give an initial assessment and is added to when preparing a report to comply with the Institute for Archaeologists and English Heritages guidelines. For example, an initial magnetometry survey can often indicate areas which are worth more attention using different techniques.

Large report

This type is used when we have a fairly good idea of where the detectable remains are and survey work on the site has finished. This seeks to comply with the English Heritage guidance for such reports.
