I’ve said “Farewell” to Earthsound

After 17 years as co-director of Earthsound Archaeological Geophysics / Earthsound Geophysics Limited, I have stood down and sold my interest in the company.
I created Earthsound in August 2002 and was delighted to serve as co-director since that time. It has been an incredibly enjoyable experience, taking me to every county on the island of Ireland using a vast array of geophysical equipment and techniques.
For the past 5 years I have been researching and lecturing in Archaeology at IT Sligo and I will be continuing my geophysical work there from now on.
Heather Gimson is the Managing Director of Earthsound and she can be contacted via the Earthsound website.
I would like to wish Heather, Cian and Ursula all the very best with Earthsound and their projects into the future.

A brief note on my work at Earthsound

From 2002-2019 I was a co-owner and co-director of Earthsound Archaeological Geophysics. Earthsound was the largest commercial company in Ireland dedicated to the investigation of archaeological remains using geophysical techniques. I formed the original partnership in 2002, and the company surveyed and reported on over 200 surveys during that period. Asides from archaeo-geophysical projects, I also directed topographical surveys, upland surveys and landscape research. From 2008 I acted as a consultant to the Serious Crime Review Team (a cold case investigation unit) of An Garda Siochána and regularly provided them with forensic geophysical surveys. Although primarily a commercial organization, Earthsound maintained a high academic profile under my directorship, as attested by my publications, and the company’s role as an Industrial Partner in PhD research. I resigned as a director from the company in June 2019.
