About Us 

In line with current global concerns, our field work takes a proactive stance on protecting the environment, its fauna and flora, and local waterways.


When possible all materials are reused or recycled and on-site work follows specific Health and Safety and Environmental guidelines which are applicable to the project.


Having worked with conservationists and construction firms in urban and rural settings, NG Archaeology has a positive approach to these matters.


As a small company we will always outsource specialist work to our archaeological colleagues, in areas of environmental analysis, dendrochronology, and detailed artefact identification and use.  


In accordance with local council policy and good practise we look to provide the local community with information about the archaeology being uncovered, be it organised site visits, talks or the inclusion of volunteers and Community Service workers whenever possible.


In supporting the idea of sustainable archaeological practise we look to maintain an open dialogue with clients and the broader community.


In doing so we hope to provide a service which is welcomed by all those involved in community and commerical developments in which we are asked to participate.
