ARCHAEOLOGICAL EVALUATION

Cursus Archaeology’s Archaeological Evaluation service, otherwise known as trial trenches, or test pits – can be opened in pre-planning if land owners wish to anticipate the archaeological potential in advance of planning submission to potentially avoid direct impacts on the development of the site. The size and number of the trenches will be a percentage of total site area, and will ideally be targeted upon features identified in a desk-based assessment including geophysical survey results.
