We are a Community Archaeology company set up to undertake research with groups and volunteers.

We are not a commercial unit set up to work in the planning system who are having  a go at community archaeology on the side. We are a company offering local knowledge and expertise tailored to the needs of different groups.

As a result we offer the best possible solution for community archaeology.

Please see our About, Staff, Testimonials, and Services pages above for more about what we do- and to see what people have said about our work.

As a Community Interest Company we re-invest profits in future project development and to promote training opportunities.

Mail: info@mercian-as.co.uk

Our projects aim to bring people together with, and improve understanding of, our shared heritage.

We give people the chance to work alongside professional archaeologists providing a hands-on learning opportunity. Volunteers get to have a go and learn all types of Archaeological techniques from test-pitting to open area excavation.

Unlike other companies we do not make you stand and watch!
