Industrial Archaeology

PCA is highly experienced in industrial archaeology undertaken during the redevelopment and regeneration of city centres, ranging in size from the isolated remains of a solitary kiln to large multi-phase factory settings. We provide full Historic Building Recording services in addition to archaeological excavation.

The UK has a rich industrial history, with many significant developments occurring during the Industrial Revolution of the 18th and 19th centuries. Many of the factories, mines, and other industrial sites that were built during this time have since fallen into disuse and decay. However, in recent years, there has been a growing interest in preserving and studying these sites as part of the country’s cultural heritage.

PCA uses a variety of techniques including historical research, fieldwork, and analysis of finds to understand the processes that took place at these sites, as well as their social and economic contexts.
