Post-excavation management


Our post-excavation management service forms an integral part of any fieldwork project which produces a material archive.  We are also able to take on projects from past excavations or help towards the preparation of a publication with graphics support.  Without careful and judicious planning post-excavation programmes can drain project resources, but FAS Heritage uses a combination of computer-based systems and an established network of material specialists to maximise the potential of project budgets.

As well as acquiring a diverse in-house publication track record of our own FAS Heritage has undertaken commissions for pre-PPG16 excavations for a variety of clients.  Recent projects include the management of a three-stage post-excavation programme for the late Roman to Anglo-Saxon cemetery at Wasperton, Warwickshire in 1981-1985, published in 2008.  The post-excavation management towards the publication of excavations at the early Roman fort at Lease Rigg, North Yorkshire in 1976-1980 was also recently successfully completed.  Ongoing commissions include work towards the online excavation archive for the Anglo-Saxon burh at Stafford (1975 to 1985) and publication of excavations at an early Roman fort in Leicestershire 1969-1971.
