We specialise in carrying out and reporting on archaeological fieldwork and historical research for private, corporate and public clients in the north-east of England and beyond.

With over 20 years’ experience working in the cultural heritage sector, we draw upon a wide range of expertise – from planning advice to academic research and community projects, we can help you through the whole process.

Established by Newcastle University in the 1980s as a commercial wing of the Department of Archaeology, The Archaeological Practice became a limited company in 2001. We are happy to provide field-school placements for students of archaeology from any university.

The Archaeological Practice is a BAJR verified contractor, is run by a MCIfA postholder, is a SMAS accredited contractor for health & safety, and holds valid CSCS cards for all staff.
