A little more about us

Vindomora Solutions Ltd are a small archaeological practice based in Consett, County Durham, England. Our aim is to provide the highest quality archaeological and heritage support with friendly advice, customer service and a speedy response to all enquiries. We serve the whole of the north of England (and beyond when requested).

Vindomora Solutions initially began life as the trading name of archaeologist and sole-trader Tony Liddell in July 2012. The company was incorporated in April 2015.

We often work in conjunction with other archaeological organisations such as Alan Williams Archaeology, and will bring in the necessary expertise to deal with larger projects.
