Wessex Archaeology’s Coastal & Marine team is the leading UK diving contractor specialising in archaeological investigation, ensuring the best possible project outcomes are safely delivered on time and on budget.


Unique one-stop solution

Our clients benefit from a unique one-stop solution when dealing with underwater cultural heritage because our fully qualified divers are also experienced maritime archaeologists, something that few other providers can match.

We work cost effectively and often at short notice with developers and national curators, while meeting the highest standards of assessment, investigation and mitigation.

The Diving Investigation Team

As well as our stand-alone dive team, Wessex Archaeology can offer single divers to join developers’ existing dive teams. This adds valuable insight when there is a need to assess and investigate archaeological material in the tidal and sub-tidal zones nearshore, inshore and offshore.

Wessex Archaeology is a full member of the Association of Diving Contractors (ADC) and an ISO 9001-registered company.
