Who are we? Headland Archaeology Ltd, now Headland Group Ltd, was formed in 1996 as a commercial company committed to serving the construction industry. Our business has gone from strength to strength and today we are one of the fastest growing companies in the archaeological sector. We currently have offices in Edinburgh, Glasgow, Hereford and Leighton Buzzard.

What do we do? We try to balance the commercial side of being an archaeological contractor – offering innovation, quality and service; with the cultural – job satisfaction and a progressive working environment. We work with clients on projects of all sizes but have built a reputation for delivering on large infrastructure projects. We have the right people and the resources, including a range of specialist teams, to face every eventuality.

How do we do it? - through training and investment. We invest in our staff. We invest in the business. We aim to predict future work and market trends, develop new products and services – all designed to keep on top of the business and focused on the client’s needs.


Solving your problems is our job – assessing risks, dealing with your planning issues.  We provide cost-effective solutions to the construction industry with a focus on property development, transport and infrastructure, power and aggregates.  From managers to technicians, we are focused on delivering for you.

Your brief to us is simple: sound advice, transparent costs and good reporting to your management team.  We give an agreed method, budget and timetable to enable the smooth running of your project. We offer specialist services, research, site investigations and mitigation strategies to let you get on with your development.

Trust. We are a business just like yours. We recognise that trust is important in any relationship. Most of our work comes from repeat business and clients who value our commitment to the priorities of their business.

Heritage sells – it can add value to your development and sets you apart from your competitors. Heritage also costs time and money. We work with you to manage the risk and give you a return on your investment.
