The inhouse expertise of ADCO’s team reflects particular strengths in medieval and post-medieval archaeology; foreshore, freshwater, lake and landscape archaeology; shipwreck archaeology; ports and harbour development archaeology; and archaeological training (terrestrial and marine).
ADCO has been successful in winning research grants to develop innovative approaches to maritime and underwater archaeology.
In conjunction with the Discovery Programme, ADCO was awarded a prestigious INSTAR grant by the Heritage Council in 2008. The Littoral Archaeology Project (LAP) assessed the impact of development works along Ireland’s east coast. In doing so, the project raised awareness of the nature of the archaeological record that has been generated through development work.
