Our Culture

We’re a bit different.

Our Training Events aren’t office bound…
Over the last few years our archaeologists have downed tools to Jailbreak to Bruges and powerboat race across the Solent. We’ve raced yachts to the Isle of Wight and back, visited exhibitions at the British Museum and walked Welsh mountains in the rain.

We are passionate about our business, passionate about our archaeology and passionate about you.
It’s all about opportunity. But it’s not all about hard work.
We believe in having fun.

Our commitment and respect for our archaeologists engenders team spirit across our sites.

Our staff are motivated, dedicated, proactive and passionate team members.
