Wessex Archaeology’s consultancy team are highly experienced professionals who have worked across the heritage sector. Our team can produce Written Schemes of Investigation (WSI) for all types of work including archaeological watching briefs, evaluations and excavations, historic building work and non-intrusive surveys like geophysics and fieldwalking.
A Written Scheme of Investigation outlines known and potential archaeological features and deposits or built heritage elements on a site and suggests a structure for exploring them using the latest, most appropriate and cost-effective archaeological techniques. Our team can produce quality WSIs which meet the highest of professional standards and satisfy the requirements of the local authority. This can include consultation with the local authority, providing advice and support to a client and devising innovative strategies that result in efficient approval and cost-effective solutions.
