Artefact and Finds Analysis

Archaeological objects can be recovered through scheduled archaeological investigation or they can be found unexpectedly. Archae-aus has a strong portfolio of experience in the analysis of Aboriginal, historical and maritime archaeological finds, including bone assemblages. Because we know how to process all kinds of collections, we can give you the benefit of our local expertise to provide realistic time and cost estimates for your project. Our finds analysis usually includes dating, cataloguing, photography and reporting, but we can also provide recommendations for ongoing conservation and management, as well as suggest avenues for incorporating finds into development design.

We maintain close connections with the WA Museum and the University of Western Australia so that you can be assured that our work is up to date with the latest research and is up to the highest archival standards.
