ArcHeritage is a trading arm of the York Archaeological Trust and was established to extend the scope and reach of the Trust’s services. We offer a complete range of archaeological and heritage services to a wide range of clients, including local authorities, government agencies, commercial developers, individuals and community groups.
Our staff have a considerable depth and variety of professional experience and an international reputation for research, development and maximising the public, educational and commercial benefits of archaeology. ArcHeritage offers services throughout Britain and internationally.
We will tailor our projects to your specific needs, and help you to generate the maximum benefit from heritage assets on your site, whether you are a multinational company handling new infrastructure projects or a community group trying to start up an excavation in your local area. Our dedicated PR team can also make sure that you benefit from great media coverage.
As a registered charity, we are committed to sharing the results of our work with the wider community and to helping people to get involved in their own heritage projects. The Trust owns and runs the world-class heritage attractions of Jorvik, DIG, Barley Hall and Micklegate Bar and hosts a huge range of public events throughout the year.
ArcHeritage is a Registered Archaeological Organisation (RAO) of the Institute for Archaeologists, and is committed to meeting IfA standards with regard to quality of archaeological work, employment practices, contributions to community benefits and development of the archaeological profession.
