About Us

the office in St Mary's Church
Albion Archaeology, originally established in 1972 as Bedfordshire County Archaeology Service (BCAS), is a professional archaeological organisation providing a full range of archaeological services to the private, public and voluntary sectors. Based in the historic St Mary's Church in the heart of Bedford, we operate on a regional and national basis, helped by good transport links to large parts of central, eastern and southern England.

With expert staff and a client-focused approach, we are able to deliver high quality archaeological work, offering value for money and a commitment to work with the client to ensure minimum delay and disruption. Our work contributes to a wider understanding of the past and Albion is committed to ensuring that the results of that work are reported through academic publication, community and educational projects, public talks and displays. Outreach is an important strand to Albion's work. Services

In addition to school visits, staff carry out public talks and lectures and produce a range of display boards, booklets and leaflets. Wherever possible we hold open days on our major excavations. All of this enables the public to find out more about archaeology and learn about interesting discoveries in their area. Most discoveries are made as a result of the development process and our graphic design team is able to work with the client to maximise the benefits of publicity and profile raising as the result of an archaeological project. Archaeology in the Community

The continuing professional development of our experienced and well qualified staff is a high priority, and, in keeping with a commitment to maintenance of the highest professional practice, Albion was among the first members of the Institute of Field Archaeologists' Registered Archaeological Organisation Scheme, launched in 1996. Clients can commission work from Albion Archaeology with the confidence that they will be receiving an authoritative and professional service delivered by expert staff. Contact Us
