Quality Assurance

Guarantees and Customer Protection

Highland Archaeology Services started trading on 13 April 2004. Since then the company has grown and served a large and varied range of clients across the north of Scotland.

We work with a network of qualified freelance and specialist archaeologists who enable us to provide excellent geographical cover and a range of skills  and experience.


In 2008 we achieved independent recognition of our health and safety policies through the UK Government's Contractors Health and Safety Scheme (CHAS). In 2010 we transferred our accreditation to the more rigorous Achilles UVDB scheme wich is audited annually (last audit April 2023).

In 2012 we achieved Chartered Institute for Archaeologists (CIfA) Registered Organisation status - the first in the highlands to do so.  Visit for details


In 2013 we joined the Federation of Archaeological Managers and Employers 


In 2021 we become a Living Wage accredited employer


Clients are protected financially through the company’s comprehensive professional indemnity and public liability insurances.
