We are not conventional archaeologists - indeed our qualifications, in Industrial Archaeology and Landscape Archaeology, mean we offer an unusual and unconventional insight into archaeological and historic sites.
Particular interests include historic water-power sites - in terms of landscape and water engineering as well as their evolution, often through many differing industries, on particular sites through time.
Other interests include historic uses of plants in industry, an area much bigger than just milling grain. Plants, and processing of particular plants, were the mainstay of industry before man-made fibres and chemicals became predominant. Our work has included projects on plants in tanning, ink-making and the use of plants for particular industrial processes (e.g teasels in cloth manufacture).
We are often involved in voluntary archaeological work, previously at a national level with the AIA and currently with local groups including GADARG.
