April Home NewsNormalcy is important right now. Routines can be the saving grace of your household as there are many uncertainties and changes to your daily pace. Did you know that 90 per cent of the world is impacted in some way by COVID-19?

While researchers once bored trenches exclusively on behalf of museums and universities, many now work on job sites. These commercial archaeologists dig up and analyze finds for private companies like the Museum of London Archaeology (MOLA), a primary contractor on HS2. Because their work is tied to the pace and scale of building projects, their targets are quite random, and discoveries can be boom or bust.” Check out this link for more information.
