Archaeology

ar·chae·ol·o·gy n. ‘The systematic study of past human life and culture by the recovery and examination of remaining material evidence’.

The Tasmanian Historic Cultural Heritage Act (1995) promotes the identification, assessment, protection and conservation of places having historic cultural heritage significance. This statutory commitment has obvious implications for pending commerical developments where the understanding of any resident archaeological resource is an important part of pre construction planning. Our company is therefor geared to the rapid identification of any resident archaeology and its mitigation through excavation,selective fabric retention or incorporation into the development design. The resulting artefactual assemblage and the results of its analysis can also be added to such on site activities thereby turning the archaeological problem into an tangible and identifiable asset.
