At A+H, we provide solutions for archaeological heritage conservation and management. 

In 2018, after decades of experience in archaeological and architectural heritage work, our founders decided to respond to the need for a company that specializes in archaeological impact assessment. We are a SEC-registered company (PG202003069) formed to provide services in-lined with archaeological impact assessment requirements and tangible cultural exhibits or presentations. We conduct archaeological research and create plans for the incorporation of archaeological heritage in development.

Our team is composed of trained and highly skilled archaeologists and heritage advocates who are registered members of Katipunan Arkeologist ng Pilipinas, Inc. (KAPI), the archaeological guild of the Philippines.
