HistoryTrent & Peak Archaeology was established in 1967 by Professor Maurice Barley, as an offshoot of the Department of Archaeology at the University of Nottingham.Surviving several changes of name, nine Prime Ministers and many changes in fashion, TPA continues to provide cutting edge archaeological services. We provide a full range of heritage services and have particular expertise in large-area aggregate extraction and high-definition survey. In 2011 Trent & Peak Archaeology found a new home as part of the York Archaeological Trust, along with the other regional units ArcHeritage in Sheffield and Northlight Heritage in Glasgow. The York Archaeological Trust for Excavation and Research is an independent charity, founded in 1972, which investigates the past for the benefit of present communities and future generations. It is divided into two branches - Exploration, comprising TPA, ArcHeritage, Northlight Heritage and YAT Fieldwork Services, and Explanation, which comprises Micklegate Bar, Barley Hall, DIG, and the world-famous Jorvik Viking Centre.
