Retained archaeologists


The pace at which marine development occurs often means that it is not feasible or practicable to position an archaeologist on site, vessel or shore at all times during work offshore and in coastal areas. Employing Wessex Archaeology as your retained archaeologist means that we are always available to give advice as a project develops, giving you the support of some of the most experienced and innovative marine and coastal archaeologists working in the sector in the UK. This may involve researching finds discovered during the course of development, travelling to review a discovery or liaising between our client and the national curator to ensure that our heritage is protected with minimised impact on development. Our unrivalled level of capacity means that our team can be ready to mobilise to you at short notice.
