HAI can perform a range of archaeological research and analysis suited to the diverse needs of clients. From archaeological testing and excavation in compliance with federal and state historic preservation laws to site-specific research to the laboratory study of archaeological specimens, the staff archaeologists of HAI bring their years of experience to the problem at hand. We have completed over 500 archaeological investigations for public agencies, municipal bodies, private clients and individuals. From preliminary testing to identify archaeological sites to the comprehensive recovery of data from complex sites, HAI has the experience and facilities to produce top-quality research results in a timely and cost-effective manner.

HAI has completed large archaeological survey and testing (Phase I and II) investigations in connection with federally-funded highway projects throughout Pennsylvania and Maryland. We have worked with the Pennsylvania Historical and Museum Commission to test and evaluate archaeological sites on its historic properties and develop planning tools for their protection and interpretation. With the Natural Resources Conservation Service, HAI archaeologists developed a training program to educate and guide NCRS staff in dealing with effects to archaeological sites. We provide complete laboratory services for the cleaning, preservation, analysis and curation of archaeological specimens. In all these services, we apply a broadly-based approach that integrates all the experience of our staff—archaeologists, museum and planning professionals, historians and geographers—to provide the highest-quality results on time and within our clients' budgets.
