In addition to standard services such as archaeological survey, mitigation, report writing, editing, drafting, artifact analysis, and data entry, Lifeways offers other in-house services that can enhance the analysis, presentation, and delivery of information gained through historical resources studies. These services include:

Replicas, Reconstruction, and Artifact Casting

Lifeways can assist you with your artifact reproduction needs, for display, teaching, curation or commemorative purposes. Museum quality display pieces can made using complex multi-step casting processes that ultimately result in finished casts looking exactly like the original artifacts, or we can provide replicas made using the traditional techniques of ancient artisans.

Posters and Presentations

Some of our clients are eager to demonstrate their efforts to help preserve the past. We have helped these proponents through the creation of large format posters presenting the work undertaken on their behalf. These posters have been used in community open houses, for display at the client’s offices, or distributed in smaller pamphlet sizes to the public or their employees.

Predictive Modelling

Lifeways has a long history of creating models of archaeological potential. These are used by developers and government agencies to gauge the proper amount of historical resources fieldwork required before certain types of development occur.

Geographic Information Systems (GIS)

Lifeways staff members are well-versed in the use of Geographic Information Systems to collect and manage small and large databases. Lifeways uses GIS to create and manage models of archaeological potential for clients, manage databases of site location and significance, and to record and map site locations in the field.

Historical Resources Protections Plans

Lifeways has become an expert in preparing and delivering Historical or Heritage Resources Protection Plans (HRPPs) for Archaeological and Historic sites to our clients for their use during construction and development phases of their projects.

Expert Testimony

In the challenging modern regulatory environment, projects are increasingly going to hearings and even legal proceedings. Our senior staff has decades of valuable experience and knowledge in historical resources and traditional use studies, and have provided expert written and oral testimony on these topics to Municipal, Provincial, Territorial, and Federal review boards.
