Historic heritage assessments and surveys

Discover a new level of care and efficiency with Trace Enterprises' approach to historic archaeological assessments and surveys. Our tailored approach is designed to meet the specific needs of each project and client. But we don't just stop there - we believe in the power of innovation. By implementing advanced recording systems and digital techniques, such as Ground Penetrating Radar, 3D Mapping, Photogrammetry, Aerial Photography, Cinematography, and GIS software, we have taken our capabilities far beyond traditional surveys. These cutting-edge technologies allow us to generate valuable new perspectives, data, and research opportunities.

If the project requires archaeological excavation, we are the team for you. With Trace Enterprises' meticulous and respectful approach to historical archaeological excavations, we begin by conducting comprehensive due-diligence assessment including archival research, gathering pre-existing data from various sources. This research forms the foundation for our strategic excavation plan, tailored to the unique needs of each site. Our team of expert archaeologists combines traditional techniques with cutting-edge technology to carefully uncover and record the physical remnants of history. Context is a priority, with every artefact meticulously documented and its position accurately recorded. After excavation, we analyse artefacts using advanced methods such as pXRF testing, use-wear analysis, and residue analysis to extract maximum information. These findings are then incorporated into a comprehensive report that provides a deeper understanding of the site's historical and cultural significance. Rest assured, our commitment to ethical practice ensures the preservation of the site's integrity and respect for the connected communities.

No challenge is too great for our experienced team. We have successfully conducted Historic heritage surveys in diverse environments, including remote areas. With emergency first aid and four-wheel drive qualifications, we are always prepared for any situation with a positive can-do attitude.

At Trace Enterprises, we have a deep passion for heritage and consider it a privilege to record Australia's historical past. If you have any questions or need assistance with a future historic development project, get in touch with us today!
