Archaeology Services Lewes (ASL) offer a range of services for below ground archaeology as well as a range of Historic Building Records and Heritage Statements, sometimes referred to as impact assessments. These services are aimed at the construction industry as well as private clients in order to discharge planning conditions. Our aim is to enable the smooth progression of development.
ASL's proprietor and Principal Archaeologist, Lisa Fisher, has been awarded corporate membership with the Chartered Institute for Archaeologists (CIfA) at associate level. We can guarantee therefore, that all work undertaken will be in accordance with CIfA standards for fieldwork.
In February 2019, CIfA assessed the quality of our reports and we are very proud to announce that they have specified that we have 'produced reports that exceed the standards required' as well as 'producing a high quality result with good background information'. In addition, an article we produced in association with Dr Matt Pope from UCL, has been published in CIfA's quarterly magazine (see slideshow and our Facebook page). This concerns a recent collaborative project to record Palaeolithic flints from Sussex museums. An excellent start to 2019.
What's in a name?
The main office base moved from Lewes District in 2017 to Boreham Street near Hailsham. We have continued to work under the banner of Archaeology Service Lewes and are still based in East Sussex. Existing clients please note our phone number has changed, and you can contact us via the contact page.
Continuing Professional Development
We take training seriously as we believe that learning is a lifelong experience. Courses recently attended include a week long course run by Historic England at Oxford University on understanding Historic buildings and two linked dayschools with Dr Jonathan Foyle on symbolism and meaning in medieval buildings at the Weald and Downland Museum.
