About us

We are a full service archaeological and built heritage consultancy that operates throughout Ontario. Our goal is to offer quick results while retaining a committment to cultural heritage. We understand how frustrating and costly delays can be in any development. We can reduce or eliminate these delays through consultation and advanced planning so any work schedule is not disrupted. Earthworks Archaeological Services is an independent consultancy, which means we have minimal overhead costs, allowing us to charge significantly lower prices than many of our competitors.

Our managing director, Anthony Butler MSc, has over eighteen years of archaeological training and experience in Canada, Ireland, Jamaica and England.  He is a member of the Ontario Association of Professional Archaeologists, the Institute of Archaeologists of Ireland and the Ontario Archaeological Society.

Shane McCartney is our field director, and has over ten years of professional experience throughout Ontario. He currently serves as an executive member of the Ontario Association of Professional Archaeologists.

We combine a proven record in resolving sites on time and within budget with an equal dedication to our past.  We have two offices, one in the Greater Toronto Area, and the other in Muskoka-Haliburton enabling us to work anywhere in Ontario.

                       Archaeological Assessments                         Archaeological Excavation

                       Historic Building Survey                                Historical Research
