Welcome to Archaeological Management Solutions (AMS)


AMS is an independent consultancy that provides a full range of archaeological services, including desk-based assessments, Environmental Impact Assessments, pre-development testing, monitoring and excavation. We also offer specialist services including geophysical surveys, GIS/mapping, LiDAR analysis, historical research and publication and dissemination services.

With offices in both Ireland and the UK, our unique multidisciplinary team of archaeologists, project managers and historians brings together many years accumulated experience within the public and private sectors. Our consultants have worked across a wide range of development types including road and rail infrastructure, power generation, flood relief, water supply schemes, mining and public amenities.

Our clients include state and semi-state bodies, local authorities, architectural and engineering consultancies, as well as private developers. We have a proven track record of providing a superior service and delivering cost savings on projects involving complex heritage issues through our pragmatic and collaborative approach.


All of our consultants come with extensive academic and professional backgrounds in archaeology and related disciplines. Over the past two decades, they have built up unrivalled experience across a wide range of developments in Ireland, the UK and Australia.

We provide project-specific heritage solutions and solid support to our clients in their negotiations with heritage authorities. We also manage the implementation of archaeological works on behalf of our clients, delivering quality results in a timely and cost-effective manner. Here at AMS, we aim to minimise the financial risk to our clients and potential delays to critical construction programmes, while also ensuring that statutory heritage obligations are met and good heritage outcomes are achieved.
