Phase Heritage (the specialist archaeological geophysical department of Phase SI) were pleased to attend and exhibit at the Chartered Institute for Archaeologists conference in Cardiff in April.

There were a number of informative themes and lively discussions over the three day event and it was good to chat to old and new acquaintances at our stand.

We decided to exhibit at the conference to highlight the fact that we had a specialist archaeological geophysical division within our company and also to promote the use of high resolution multi-sensor magnetic systems.  We have been a market leader in high resolution magnetic surveys for archaeology, having used a Multi-sensor Array Cart System (MACS) for a couple of years now.  The improved resolution and data quality, coupled with more accurate data positioning and increased collection speeds have meant that this type of survey has now become standard for a number of our clients.  The conference coincided with our launch of a second MACS system which has given the capacity to undertake more surveys and show a wider range of clients the benefits of cart-based surveys.

Just after the conference Mark Whittingham, the Director in charge of our heritage division, was pleased to receive confirmation of his acceptance as a Member of the Chartered Institute for Archaeologists.  Mark has been promoting the need for improved standards across the archaeological geophysical sector and by being accepted as MCIfA he hopes that this will further emphasise our commitment to quality
