Archaeology Subscriptions

 

We know how hard it is to access a service and then it seems to be an uphill battle to get a timely and professional service. As we are a new company, we want to provide a different approach to the traditional method of providing archaeological solutions.  Being a small family run company, we do not incur the overheads of large organisations, so we can provide more tailored cost effective services to fit our clients’ needs.  As we are a small community we like to provide assistance to those who can’t afford the large costs to access archaeological solutions - We like to think out of the box and will always try to find a professional solution that fulfils your needs.  Some of our profits are invested directly into the community through our pro bono work which we offer to Preservation Trusts and individuals who can’t afford the cost of engaging a larger organisation – We believe in giving back to our community.

So we are piloting a three tier subscription service that will enable us to provide a timely, cost effective and professional service to our clients. So, you may be a developer, an organisation or a person who may have discovered some archaeology and you need a quick response - Our new service will provide access to a trained archaeologist when you need them, not when they can get to you. 

You can contact us through a range of mediums, from a phone call, email, facetime, snap chat or  face-to face meetings. If we are attending a client, we will endeavour to get back to you for an initial assessment within a few hours before deciding the next step. If we need expert advice, we have access to an extensive range of experts through the Chartered Institute of Archaeologists with whom we are affiliated, whom we will consult and liaise on your behalf.

Initially, we will be piloting a three tiered monthly subscription service.

Tier one package

Our tier one package is £25 per month - this will provide a basic 30 minute phone and video conferencing facility with an archaeologist to assess your finds and needs and two face-to-face visits per month within business hours regardless of where you live on the mainland and advice on the available solutions. This package is mainly aimed at land owners, developments, trusts and organisations.

Tier two package

The tier two package priced at £35 per month provides the same as above, plus four face-to-face visits per month within business hours regardless of where on Orkney you reside as long as it is within a 50 mile radius*. This package is mainly aimed at land owners, developments, trusts and organisations.

Tier three package

Tier three package is priced at £55 per month that adds all the benefits of tier two with an unlimited access to our archaeologists outside working hours up to (7pm- 10pm) and up to seven visits per month. 

Access service

We also offer an access service priced at just £15 for a 20 minute consultation and is aimed at quick adhoc discoveries that require a quick identification and advice. These packages can be applied for via our booking service.
