Cultural Property Research

At ARCGEO Inc., we conduct buried cultural property research such as archaeological excavation survey, measurement and recordation task of archaeological features and remains, radioactive carbon measurement (AMS, β-ray) and data processing and digitalization of cultural properties information.

In June 1998, as the first archaeological firm in Toyama prefecture, ARCGEO Inc. started providing services to support archaeological survey of buried cultural properties at various archaeological sites. As the first archaeological survey, our company was awarded by Daimon-machi, Izumi-gun, Toyama prefecture to conduct archaeological excavation at Futakuchi-aburamen Site, which dates back to 7th to 8th century. Today, with the support of universities and research institutes, we set our goal and aim higher to conduct a further sophisticated research and analysis along with the archaeological surveys conducted by our professional staff. At our company, a cultural property protection department was established at the head office as a systematized excavation team with highly equipped establishment.
