Oxford Archaeology has a 50-year history of quality, innovation and service
As a multi-disciplinary practice, we cover all aspects of the historic environment, providing everything from archaeological excavations and survey, landscape and buildings studies, complex geospatial data management systems to heritage consultancy services.
Most archaeological work today is carried out in advance of development. Oxford Archaeology is one of the leading service-providers in this field, with thousands of clients who recognise us as experts in excavation and heritage management. As a registered charity with a heritage and education focus, we also care about helping people to discover and enjoy their heritage. We have welcomed many thousands of visitors to our excavation sites on open days and tours, and volunteers have taken part in many of our projects.
OA and the COVID-19 Emergency
Oxford Archaeology is contuining to modify its work practices in response to the COVID-19 Pandemic and will do so for as long as there is a risk to our staff and others we work with. The OA/Propsect Covid-19 Working Group continue to meet at least once a fortnight to review the risk level posed by the pandemic, and to modify or maintain our response as appropriate.
Our vision is to be at the forefront of advancing knowledge about the past and working in partnership with others for the public benefit. Click here to read more about our vision and strategy.
