Welcome to Rathmell Archaeology Ltd

Rathmell Archaeology provides commercial archaeological and heritage consultancy services to developers and their agents, land managers, civil engineers, heritage authorities and local government departments across Northern Britain.

With a strong graduate workforce collectively providing an extensive range of knowledge and specialist expertise, we are able to apply academic rigour to a commercial setting, maintaining a fine balance between the need for profitable development and archaeological preservation.

Acting on behalf of our clients throughout the planning process, our primary aim is agreeing packages of mitigation to allow their development to move forward in a time and cost-effective way.

Archaeology is an unqualified risk for developers and fully understanding the liability at the earliest possible stage is advantageous and streamlines the planning application process. We are client focussed, our objective being to assess and minimise risk in order to enable development.
