Archaeological Excavation is generally carried out as a last resort as preservation in situ of any archaeological remains discovered is the preferred option.
Many sites cannot, however, be preserved due to design issues and full archaeological excavation remains the only option by which we can preserve a record of the site. All archaeological excavation in Ireland can only be carried out by professional archaeologists working under licence from the Government Department responsible for Heritage.
If your project requires that an archaeological excavation be undertaken, then come and talk to us. We have been carrying out archaeological excavations in Ireland for over 20 years and can advise on the best solution for you and your budget.
