Who we are
AHARG are the Ambion Historical & Archaeological Research Group. We specialise in conducting archaeological metal detector surveys on sites, large or small, throughout the UK and Europe.
We are a small team of dedicated people who understand the importance of accurate surveying. We understand that often there will be little or no evidence to be found; however we will always maintain a high standard and consistent approach – with a certain amount of humour thrown in. Ground conditions are key to a successful survey. We will advise you on the suitability of a site and whether the area would need topping, rolling or any clearance to extract the best survey results.
