Site investigation

Looking for advice prior to a planning application or to commission archaeological work? We can provide experienced staff for topographic survey, evaluation, archaeological monitoring and full excavation

Our experienced team can provide archaeological advice at an early stage in the design programme, in advance of an application for planning permission. This can include negotiation with the planning authority on your behalf, desk-based research, or fieldwork specifically targeted to the swift resolution of potential planning issues. We provide archaeological research and evaluation services for a variety of clients, from commercial developers to government organisations and are experienced in providing advice on the potential impact of development upon the archaeological resource.

From topographic (landscape) survey to archaeological monitoring, evaluation and excavation, we provide archaeological mitigation strategies tailored to the specific needs of our clients. We understand that timescale, cost and risk management are key considerations for our clients and ensure that our archaeological work is conducted in a safe and professional manner and without disruption to the construction programme.

“I have always found Allen Archaeology to be very ‘can do’ in their attitude, as well as pragmatic and adaptable in their approach, whilst maintaining high standards of professional integrity. I have enjoyed working collaboratively with them on a number of large linear schemes.”
