About Us

Susan Ovenden and Alistair Wilson

Rose Geophysical Consultants was established in 2010 by Dr Susan Ovenden and Alistair Wilson, bringing together over 40 years experience in geophysics and archaeology, combining their involvement in the commercial sector, research, education and community projects.

We predominately undertake geophysical surveys as part of wider archaeological evaluations prior to development, anything  from new housing to gravel extraction. We also carry out more research themed surveys, for example determining the layout of earlier formal gardens to assist with estate management or as part of wider landscape projects. Clients to date include: National Trust for Scotland, Historic Scotland, CFA Archaeology Ltd, Ross and Cromaty Archaeological Services and Oxford University.

Building on past experience we also assist with community projects offering participation in geophysical surveys to local groups and evening lectures.  We have worked with groups on Skye (Arc-eolas Shleite) and are also working with the Discover Bute Landscape Partnership scheme.

Rose Geophysical Consultants actively pursue their own research projects. At the moment we are undertaking the CSAR (Christian Sites of the Atlantic Rim) project, part funded by a Small Grant from the British Academy.
