Business Philosophy

Arrowhead Archaeology believes in adopting a co-operative, collaborative approach to large scale or particularly complex projects and is willing to undertake such projects on a joint venture basis with other consultancies and professional colleagues.  We have an extensive list of highly qualified and experienced specialists and sub-contract work on a project by project basis, as the need arises when undertaking fieldwork and post-excavation analysis. 

The Name
The name derives from the arrowhead depicted on the Arrowhead Archaeology logo. This fine early Bronze Age barbed and tanged arrowhead was found by Phil during his research survey work in the parish of Stoke Abbott in the Marshwood Vale of west Dorset; it is made of Portland Chert and is one of several lithic finds in this material among a very large assemblage of surface collected finds from the survey area.
