Wessex Archaeology

Wessex Archaeology is the UK’s leading provider of archaeological and heritage services and an educational charity.

Established for 40 years, we offer an unrivaled range of services above ground, below ground, and underwater, delivered by over 320 industry experts from an international network of offices.

We work in partnership with our clients across a variety of sectors to deliver practical, sustainable solutions to effectively manage the historic environment. Our experience and knowledge help our clients achieve successful planning outcomes, engage communities and stakeholders, and enhance the value of national historical assets.

As a registered charity, community engagement is at the heart of what we do. We are committed to promoting education in science, the arts, culture and heritage. The knowledge gained through serving our commercial clients is used to enhance the experiences of individuals, communities, and organisations alike.

We use archaeology as an exciting stimulus to teach science, history, art and literacy. We offer a selection of workshops and loan boxes to school groups and clubs for children and young people. www.wessexarch.co.uk/education to find out more. 

Wessex Archaeology often partners with heritage organisations in Sheffield to deliver family activities based on the heritage around us. www.wessexarch.co.uk/events. Our YouTube channel has a range of resources that aim to bring archaeology to life for all.
