We are a specialised, highly skilled team working in historical archaeology and heritage, focusing on best practice methodologies and quality outcomes.
Our 20+ years experience in the field offers clients comprehensive understanding and analysis of complex issues as the basis of our expert advice.
Archaeological sites in Parramatta and Sydney are the focus of recent projects.
Parramatta sites include: testing at Civic Place; excavation at 1 Smith Street; excavations of the Hassall's house at 109 George Street; convict huts and the well of a Chinese market gardener on the corner of George & Charles Streets ; the Emu Brewery at the Parramatta Children's Court site on the corner of George & O'Connell Streets; and the site of the John Watts' designed 1818 convict hospital for the new Parramatta Justice Precinct.
During 2009 we excavated an early site dating from c.1804 at 15 Macquarie Street.
Archaeological sites in Sydney City and inner suburbs have included: Sydney Conservatorium of Music; Town Hall burial ground; Barker's Mill and the Cross City Tunnel; as well at the King George V Recreation Centre in The Rocks; sites associated with the early brickfields at 19-41 Reservoir Street, Surry Hills and the corner of Pitt & Campbell Streets, Haymarket; and 19th-century housing at Jacksons Landing and 50-72 Union Street, Pyrmont.
During 2005 we assessed the Macquarie Lightstation site at South Head.
During 2008/2009 we excavated two important sites. At 710-722 George Street, Haymarket we found pottery from convict potter Thomas Balls's pottery (c.1801-1823), Australia's oldest excavated pottery site. The final report is now available online. Five months excavation at Darling Walk, Darling Harbour revealed extensive evidence of foreshore reclamation, industrial activity and workers' cottages.
