Wardell Armstrong Archaeology and Wardell Armstrong Heritage

Wardell Armstrong Archaeology is a commercial archaeological contractor which works throughout the UK on a wide range of projects in all sectors including renewable energy, utilities, mining/aggregates, house-building and transport. WAA has a proven track record of successfully managing and undertaking all types of archaeological fieldwork on behalf of their clients and offers a cost-effective and efficient service which is driven by the commercial realities faced by developers. WAA can provide the whole range of fieldwork services from geophysical survey through to full scale excavation and can also offer a full suite of post-excavation services including in-house specialist services.

WAA’s unique position as part of a larger environmental and engineering consultancy means that whilst they can work independently like any other archaeological contractor, they are able to draw upon the expertise of disciplines such as ground engineering, geotechnics and ecology to offer clients cost-effective and time saving survey packages relevant to their particular development site needs.
