The constancy is happy to undertake small-scale projects, including church archaeology. For large scale projects we prefer to commission and manage archaeological works in order to increase efficiency and eliminate conflicts of interest that can arise between consultancy and contracting. We have a good acquaintance and working relationships with numerous archaeological contracting companies.
