Post-excavation and Specialist Services
Post-excavation work begins as soon as investigations in the field are completed. At ASE, we offer a comprehensive package of post-excavation services.
Our post-excavation team work on cataloguing, analysing and reporting archaeological finds and environmental samples. Our specialists boast expertise in a wide range of artefacts and ecofacts, and we an extremely talented in-house illustration team who provide figures and reconstructions of past landscapes.
All work at this stage is handled by our post-excavation managers, who are able to respond quickly and efficiently to client needs, providing prompt turnaround and complete control over costs, timetable and programming needs.
As well as our own projects, we provide specialist services to a number of external clients including AOC Archaeology, Museum of London Archaeology, Northamptonshire Archaeology, Pre-construct Archaeology, SLR Consulting, Surrey County Archaeological Unit, and Quest, providing high standard reports, illustrations and photographs for client and publication purposes.
The study of 'finds' or artefacts is a highly specialised area with huge archaeological potential.

Our in-house illustration team provide a comprehensive range of graphic services.
Our animal bone specialists provide identification, analysis and reporting of mammal, bird, fish and microfaunal bone specimens, including in-depth analysis of butchery practices and taphonomy.
Our dedicated osteoarchaeologists provide best practice advice and expertise for the successful retrieval of human remains, through to the cleaning, processing and interpretation of the skeletal material.
Forensic archaeologists provide police with a range of specialist skills, varying from bone identification and advice to the location of clandestine graves and their careful excavation and recording.
