During the coronavirus pandemic, commercial archaeology companies continue to provide the quality expertise and advice that their clients need while protecting the health and safety of their employees, clients and the public.

FAME members are already adapting to rapidly changing circumstances and will continue to do so as the situation evolves.

This includes archaeologists working from home to carry out necessary desk-based assessment and crucial post-excavation analysis, and finding innovative ways to keep working on site and in the field, such as minimising the risks of cross-contamination by keeping fieldworkers in discrete teams.

FAME members will keep adjusting to the situation, in partnership with our clients, to deliver excellent archaeological results that allow sustainable development to continue.

FAME, the Federation of Archaeological Managers and Employers, is the distinctive voice of archaeological employers and managers, and the only organisation solely devoted to representing their interests within the profession and the business world. info@famearchaeology.co.uk
