HADAS Excavations

HADAS undertakes excavations in Barnet usually at least once a year and sometimes more frquently. We have experienced archaeologists who work alongside less experienced diggers and make sure all our digs are carried out and recorded in a professional manner. If you are interested then do please get in touch with us and learn more about what we do, how you can help and get involved in uncovering the archaeology of Barnet.
