Welcome to Architectural Archaeology

Dr Samuel is a seasoned traveller in the different worlds where architectural heritage is an issue. These worlds range from great institutions that curate ‘Grade 1*’ monuments to the ‘brown-field’ site developer. Cathedral, public school; swish Georgian rectory, derelict factory, pillbox or ruinous castle; it is all ‘grist to the mill’.

It is not just about complete buildings – He provides that vital understanding of excavated architectural remains – including loose fragments. Most archaeological units in southern England have discharged post-excavation obligations with his aid - Museums have also found his assistance invaluable.

Flexibility of approach allows competitive prices for private customers, developers, civil engineers and heritage bodies. Dr Samuel’s past involvement in many prestigious projects speaks for itself.

He provides:

  • Desk-based assessments and statements of significance
  • Historic building recording
  • Historical research on properties
  • Written and visual content provision for Heritage Interpretation
  • Museum collections measurement and management
