We are one of the UK’s largest providers of Historic Environment Desk-Based Assessments, also known as DBAs.  

The first step to finding out whether there could be archaeology under your site is a DBA. A DBA uses existing historical and archaeological information to work out: 

  • whether there is likely to be any archaeology 

  • what sort of remains there could be 

  • how significant or important the archaeology could be 

Along with this analysis, we make practical recommendations for further work. DBAs can be used to support your planning application. They can help reduce unforeseen risks both in the planning stages of development and beyond.  

Whatever your site, we will quickly assess it and clearly explain our findings and recommendations. Our expert team work to high standards, complying with national and local planning policy.
