We have worked constructively with L - P since c.2006 on a number of post-excavation projects, which most recently included supporting L - P on the osteological and coffin furniture assessment of the HS2 Stoke Mandeville excavations. L – P archaeologists also worked alongside our field team at HS2 Blackgrounds, a now internationally renowned Iron-Age and Roman site. This move therefore represents a continuation and progression of our shared ethos and practice. L – P Founding Partner, Guy Hunt, adds:
“I'm really excited by the possibilities this new chapter will bring. We're bringing together two organisations that have got a lot in common in terms of shared values and professional ethics, but that are also quite different and complementary in terms of geography, skills, experience and approach.”
Ultimately bringing L – P : Archaeology into MOLA will ensure we are able to continue delivering high-quality, innovative, and cost effective work on both major infrastructure projects and local developments - despite a current sector-wide shortage of trained archaeologists. This includes taking on L – P’s exciting programme of current and future work. We are also pleased to report that L – P : Archaeology’s partners will be joining our Leadership Team, bringing with them a depth of knowledge and skills acquired from many years of successful operations.
