One of Terra Mare’s main fields of research is archaeozoology. By means of modern osteo-archaeological methods, we have been able to obtain remarkable results regarding questions of economic history and environmental archaeology. Furthermore, Terra Mare has a large reference collection of mollusc shells on hand.

Regarding the conservation of ground monuments, we offer services in every area from surveys, watching briefs, site testing and excavations through to the preparation of detailed reports.
