The initial type of excavation work that may be required, as part of the planning process, usually takes the form of Trial Trench evaluation. This involves the excavation of a series of trenches, measuring around two metres in width and ten to fifty metres long, to determine if archaeological remains are present. AS carry out auger surveys, should they be required as part of the evaluation. If your planning conditions require this kind of work, AS can conduct an evaluation efficiently and effectively. Our field teams are skilled and experienced in conducting archaeological evaluations.
