How do you know where to dig?

We use historical and previous archaeological data to guide where to test. Usually, the archaeological investigation focuses on areas that will be adversely impacted by the project such as:

  • Foundations
  • Grease Traps
  • Swimming Pool Footprints
  • Utility Lines
  • Water Retention Ponds
