Dyfed Archaeological Trust

Dyfed Archaeological Trust is one of the oldest established archaeological practices in Britain, with a reputation for efficient, competitive and high quality delivery of projects to public and private clients. We are divided into two sections: DAT Archaeological Services and Heritage Management.
DAT Archaeological Services provides a wide range of professional services across the country, including evaluations, excavations, desk-top assessments, building surveys, landscape surveys and geophysical surveys. We have undertaken over 2000 projects, ranging in size from small-scale watching briefs to large-scale excavations in advance of major developments, in a variety of environments, including rural, urban, intertidal and upland.
The Heritage Management section maintains the regional historic environment record and provides information and advice for understanding, appreciating and managing the historic environment of south-west Wales.
