Archaeological evaluation is the rapid determination of the presence or absence, nature and extent of archaeological remains on a site.
An evaluation can consist of non-intrusive techniques such as landscape or geophysical survey, but more often takes the form of trial trenching across the footprint of the proposed redevelopment.
Whatever the method of evaluation, Pre-Construct Archaeology can negotiate, design, undertake and manage a suitable evaluation strategy on behalf of our clients.
The results of the evaluations are used to advise the planning authority on the character, extent and importance of archaeological remains. As such, it is crucial that developers can trust the ability and experience of the organisation undertaking this type of work.
