Wessex Archaeology provides outstanding expertise in this field and will monitor any trial pits and boreholes, interpret sediment formation processes and depositional environments and begin to assess the probable archaeological and palaeoenvironmental significance of those deposits. This work allows the archaeological potential of a site to be evaluated.
Data collected during Ground Investigation (GI) monitoring will often be used to feed into a deposit model, allowing possible archaeological sites to be identified, and allowing any further archaeological works such as borehole survey or archaeological evaluation to be carefully targeted.
