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.
