City firm digs into England

A CAPITAL archaeology firm is expanding into England.

Headland Archaeology, based on Jane Street, has sealed a takeover of Hereford-based Archaeological Investigations.

It is a major move for Headland, which was formed in 1996 in a former lemonade factory in Edinburgh and has gone on to become one of the biggest archaeological firms in the UK, with offices in Cork, Galway and Glasgow.

Headland managing director Tim Holden said: "We were looking to expand into England, and were familiar with Archaeological Investigations, so it really was a perfect fit for both parties."
