Working with and for communities and their members in a variety of ways. 

We are always keen to hear from communities and groups interested in exploring, recording or sharing the heritage, history and archaeology that matters to them. We can also support groups, agencies and developers to share their work, and the findings made, with local residents and stakeholders. 

A registered charity, we are passionate about working with communities to explore the past for the benefit of present communities and future generations.
