Welcome to Bluestone Archaeology CIC


Bluestone Archaeology is a social enterprise, in 2020 we will provide our services as a not for profit community interest company, CIC.

COMMERCIAL (Developer funded work)


Before our transition to a community interest company, Bluestone Archaeology

In order to fund the setting-up of the CIC we have retained our commercial

capability and offer clients the following services:


Consultation and Advice

• Heritage Asset Statements

• Desk-Based-Assessments

• Historic Building Surveys

• Landscape Surveys

• Bespoke GIS mapping projects

• Digital archaeology services

• Evaluations

• Watching Briefs

• Excavation

• Post-excavation & reporting

• Archive deposition

• Expert advice and archaeological consultancy


The above services will be charged out at prevailing commercial rates and once staff

pay, travel, expenses and business overhead costs are covered any surplus monies

will be ring-fenced and redistributed into enabling UK based community projects.

This will be clearly shown in our yearly trading accounts. It is intended, in the longterm,

to partly fund the CIC from any surplus monies generated from its commercial
