All archaeological work involves a period of post-excavation which includes detailed analysis of archaeological material, and a comprehensive report.

ADS is proud to have a state-of-the-art purpose-built facility located in Kells, where our team of highly skilled staff are equipped to take the process from start to finish.

This facility services in-house post-excavation requirements as well as those of the archaeological community at large.

In addition to analysis and reporting, ADS can facilitate handling and storage of archaeological archives, artefacts, and environmental material.

It is not uncommon for the process of post-excavation to come to a standstill for any number of reasons, and at any stage, leaving this vital part of the archaeological process unfinished. ADS will review your archive, resume the work, and bring the project to full completion within your required timeframe.
In addition to our team of archaeologists, osteoarchaeologists, environmental scientists, and archivists, we also have a dedicated graphics department with a vast amount of experience in illustration and publishing.
Our team has the experience to deliver outstanding results whatever the size or scope of your project’s requirements.

  • Archaeological investigations are not confined to the man-made items that are excavated. Seeds, shells, insects, wood, and the soils they are found in, all come under scientific scrutiny in order to build a concise picture of the past.
    ADS provides a full range of environmental processing, analyses, and specialist reports. We also carry out research programmes on the materials and results generated by our analysts’ teams. ADS has worked closely with Royal Holloway, University of London, and Reading University’s Paleoecology Department to facilitate a wide range of paleoenvironmental research.
