Established in 2007, the Orkney Research Centre for Archaeology (ORCA) offers both terrestrial and marine historic environment services.
These are cost effective and efficiently delivered by our experienced and well-qualified team, who work closely with a wide range of clients from the renewable energy, electricity transmission, oil and gas sectors, in addition to infrastructure developers and legislative bodies, to provide historic environment solutions.
In addition, ORCA has a strong commitment to outreach and training – placing archaeology in the community and using their experience to train local people in archaeological techniques.
It has a dedicated Lifelong Learning and Outreach Archaeologist, Dan Lee, who has developed close links with both local groups and national funding organisations, and have enabled communities to develop their own outreach and training programmes.
