About Us

Avon Archaeology Ltd is a commercial archaeological consulting and contracting unit based in Bristol, providing a wide range of archaeological services to the construction and development industries.  We were formed from Avon Archaeological Unit Ltd, which was founded in 1992, making us one of the longest continually active archaeological units in the south west region.
Our team are all highly qualified and experienced archaeologists, each with a wealth of expertise in field archaeology, and also their own particular fields of special knowledge, including: historic landscape analysis, historic building surveying, site surveying, small finds assessment and analysis, GIS, CAD and illustration. We also have an Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) which our fully Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) licensed pilot can use commercially for aerial photography and survey.
Since 2013 we have continued to build on an enviable reputation for quality work, inherited from Avon Archaeological Unit Limited. We have undertaken projects across the south-west region and beyond. Our projects have ranged from nationally important excavations on prehistoric sites, such as a 2014 excavation at Cherhill in Wiltshire, close to the Avebury World Heritage Site, to small scale watching briefs on domestic developments. Whatever the project, we aim to provide cost effective solutions to the archaeological requirements of our clients, whilst maintaining a commitment to high academic and professional standards.
