ARS received this internationally recognised and prestigious award for its sector-leading innovations.

All the members of the CDA are proud of ARS for winning this award for the hard work they are putting into their sector. Well done!

Champions of Archaeological Innovation

ARS are one of the sector’s champions for innovative archaeology approaches. This is especially regarding non-intrusive landscape prospection services (NILPS).

The NILPS has been designed to improve site detection and locate “hard to find” archaeology while improving safety, reducing carbon emissions and costs, and speeding up delivery.

ARS is the first commercial archaeological company to achieve this award, and it comes off the back of many years of work undertaken in developing these approaches.
