Who We Are


MGA Ltd is an independent archaeological consultancy that has been providing professional advice and services to its clients since 1990. We pride ourselves on taking a common sense approach to heritage matters and coming up with practical and cost effective solutions.

We believe that archaeological requirements within the planning system need to be both reasonable and proportionate. We help to untangle what often appears to be a complicated and burdensome system.

With offices in YORK, NEWCASTLE and BRIGHTON we carry out projects across England.
