SERVICES

We carry out surveys for a wide range of organisations such as University researchers, Local Societies, private individuals, archaeological consultants and campaign organisations. We have surveyed in Sweden, Spain and Iran in addition to the UK.

The surveys are carried out in accordance with the English Heritage guidelines and codes of conduct and standards of the Institute for Archaeologists.

We use our own Bartington Grad 601/2 fluxgate gradiometer and our resistivity meter for the surveys and use TerraSurveyor, formerly ArcheoSurveyor, and other industry standard software to process the data. Reports are usually in pdf format although others can be arranged.

We survey sites ranging from many hectares to small areas looking for individual walls.

Our principal services are:-

Magnetometry Surveys
 

This is a  method of locating and defining archaeological remains but is dependant on the soil having an adequate iron content, (fortunately most do).

 
Resistivity Surveys
 

This method of locating remains is slower and depends largely on the moisture content of the soil.

Please contact us should you wish to ascertain whether geophysical techniques are likely to be productive on your site.
