Post-Excavation Analysis & Recording

What is Post-Excavation?

Post Excavation is the processes of analysis and interpretation that follows completion of archaeological fieldwork.

Our streamlined and commercial approach minimises the cost of initial cleaning and cataloguing of finds.

Our Finds Specialists and Conservators are then able to process assemblages efficiently and report on results, whether dealing with small watching briefs or large multiperiod sites.

All processing is consistent with professional standards, including Standards and guidance for the collection, documentation, conservation and research of archaeological materials (CIfA, 2014).

Our in-house Specialists have expertise in human osteology, archaeozoology, small finds, medieval/post-medieval pottery, glass and a number of smaller artefact classes. We also engage with leading external specialists who are on-hand to analyse any additional materials.

What Happens Next?

Post-Excavation results go forward to final report compilation in readiness for submission to the Planning Authority and will form part of the Site Archive Deposition.
