Essex County Council Field Archaeology Unit merges with Archaeology South-East
We are delighted to announce that after two years of negotiations Archaeology South-East has completed the business acquisition of the Essex County Council Field Archaeology Unit. The Essex County Unit has been at the forefront of archaeological research in East Anglia for nearly 40 years, but changes in the way in which Essex County Council delivers local services encouraged the Council to find an external organisation to take over the operation.
The Essex team brings new skills to Archaeology South-East, with specialist knowledge in the archaeology of Essex and the East of England, covering urban and rural sites, buildings and finds of all periods from prehistory to the present day, and particular expertise in the excavation of sand and gravel sites and pioneering research on coastal and inter-tidal archaeology.
As a result of this merger ASE now has 75 professional archaeologists working from our three regional offices: Sussex, London and Essex.
