WELCOME TO DAT ARCHAEOLOGICAL SERVICES
We provide an extensive range of archaeological services to the private and public sector in
South-West Wales and nationally. These include consultancy advice, desk-top assessments, evaluations, excavations,
geophysical surveys, buildings surveys, watching briefs and topographic surveys. We have undertaken over 2000
projects, ranging in size from small-scale watching briefs to large-scale excavation in advance of major developments,
in a variety of environments, including rural, urban, intertidal and upland.
Based in Llandeilo, Carmarthenshire in South-West Wales, DAT Archaeological Services has a complete
understanding of the legislation covering Wales, planning structures and planning guidance, as well as planning
structures in other parts of the UK, and is therefore well placed to offer clients advice and provide solutions
on all aspects of cultural heritage and archaeology.
