Welcome to Architectural Archaeology

Dr Mark Samuel has extensive experience in archaeology and building history, having worked in the field for more than thirty-five years. He has collaborated with organisations ranging from institutions curating Grade 1 monuments to developers of brown-field sites, and has completed projects on a wide variety of historical buildings, including cathedrals, castles, schools, rectories, factories, and pillboxes.

It’s not just about complete buildings – he provides a rare expertise in excavated architectural remains and fragments. He has aided most archaeological units in south-east England with their post-excavation obligations, and provided invaluable assistance to many museums.

Flexibility of approach allows competitive prices for private customers, developers, civil engineers and heritage bodies. Dr Samuel’s past involvement in many prestigious projects speaks for itself.

He provides:

  • Desk-based assessments, statements of significance and heritage statements
  • Historic building recording
  • Historical research on properties
  • Written and visual content provision for Heritage Interpretation
  • Museum collections measurement and management
