ARCHAEOLOGY – Working throughout the UK and Ireland

Headland Archaeology, established in 1996, is a wholly commercial company and one of the largest archaeology firms in Europe supplying services to the UK and Ireland.  We have offices in Edinburgh, Hereford, Bedfordshire and Glasgow.

Although Headland specialises in larger infrastructure and renewables projects, we also offer a comprehensive range of archaeological services, including specialist areas, to a broad spectrum of clients. We know what we are good at and are able to translate this into a client-focussed approach, minimising risk, enabling development, delivering products on time and to budget.
