Cultural Heritage Assessment and EIS Chapter Production:

Geo-Mara archaeological staff have extensive experience in the compilation of marine and terrestrial archaeological reports and assessments.

CH Assessments and EIS chapters assess the likely impact of a proposed development on a subject site.  The main body of each Cultural Heritage Chapter can be divided into three general components.

  • A desktop study of all the available references relating to the particular site,
  • The completion of a site survey
  • The collation of all recorded data into chapter format.

Finalised chapter format can be tailored to the clients specific requirement.
