Wessex Archaeology: Celebrating 40 years
This year, Wessex Archaeology celebrates its 40th anniversary, offering the chance to reflect on the challenges and successes that have shaped the organisation and to look ahead at what the future brings, both for the organisation and the wider industry.
The ‘Great Yorkshire Way’: Iron Age and Roman remains near Rossington, South Yorkshire
Between 2012–2014 staff from Wessex Archaeology’s Sheffield office undertook investigations along the 4.5 km-long course of a new road which revealed Iron Age and Roman remains near Rossington, South Yorkshire.
The Wessex Archaeology Heritage team have begun their initial phase of work at the Shugborough Estate, a National Trust property in Staffordshire. The site is rare in its completeness; the estate has survived with all major buildings including the mansion house, servants' quarters, historic farmyard and walled garden.
Wool Bridge, Dorset
Wessex Archaeology's Heritage consultancy team were commissioned by Dorset County Council’s Highways Department to carry out recording and archaeological works at Wool Old Bridge, a stone bridge of five arches which crosses the River Frome in Wool, Purbeck.

Offshore Renewables: Offshore Windfarms
Over the last 16 years we have delivered over two-thirds of all marine development projects in UK waters from offshore windfarm Rounds 1, 2 and 3 as well as other major renewables infrastructure and windfarm extension projects, demonstrating our track record as market leaders.
A Historic Marine Protected Area (HMPA) that Wessex Archaeology has worked on is that of HMS Campania, located in the Firth of Forth. Originally designated under the Protection of Wrecks Act 1973 on 1 December 2001, HMS Campania became a HMPA in 2013 when the Act was superseded in Scotland.
