The Advantages of a Freelance Archaeologist & Historic Buildings Recorder.

Many people are concerned about getting involved with officialdom because they don't know where it will take them. My work and advice is impartial. I can act as a mediator/interpreter between you and the organisations involved in your project.

Because I don't have the weight of a cumbersome organisation behind me my charges are far less than a commercial unit. After all, YOU don't have to pay for a receptionist, admin, salesman, middle manager because I have no need of them.

Because I don't have the bureaucracy of a cumbersome organisation behind me I can mobilise quickly and I am very flexible as to timings and working hours.

I will tell you exactly what I can and cannot do.

I do not pass my work on to third parties unless it is a specialised subject that requires an expert (dendrochronology or archaeological finds specialist work for example). Therefore the work is always confidential and handled at a professionally qualified level.
