Archaeological or conservation qualifications, wide-spread knowledge and experience, and diverse skills characterise the team, all of whom are at Senior level and above. As consultants we need to be thoroughly conversant with the legislation and guidance within all geographies, and to be confident in negotiation with clients and regulators over the significance of heritage assets, the degree of threat, methods that can be employed for investigation, as well as costs and timescales.
