RECENT PROJECTS

A small selection of projects undertaken on behalf of our clients, including The National Trust, Canterbury Cathedral, the National Lottery Heritage Fund, Norfolk Archaeological Trust, Churches Conservation Trust, The Swimming Pond Company, & many others...

Bodiam Castle, East Sussex

Working on behalf of the National Trust, MJC Associates undertook a series of fabric surveys to record and interpret the many thousands of graffiti inscriptions cut into the building.

The survey also examined the building chronology, with the aim of identifying individual construction phases and restorations.


Royston Cave, Hertfordshire

Undertaking a fully measured photographic survey of the carvings and graffiti located in the artificial cave structure located beneath the centre of Royston, Hertfordshire.

The project included additional archival and documentary research to establish the likely date and origins of the carvings.


Canterbury Cathedral, Kent

Working on behalf of the Dean and Chapter, MJC Associates undertook a fabric and graffiti survey of a section of the north nave, in advance of works to relocate the cathedral organ.

A large number of early inscriptions were identified and recorded, and a scaled fabric drawing was created to place them in the context of the wider fabric.

Knole, Sevenoaks, Kent

As part of the largest National Trust archaeological and conservation project undertaken to date, MJC Associates undertook a series of fabric and graffiti surveys in a variety of areas within the building.

We were also involved in a series of outreach activities, including special events, volunteer training, and educational activities.


Oxburgh Hall, Norfolk

Working on behalf of the National Trust, as part of the 'Raising the Roof' project, MJC Associates undertook a series of archaeological recording surveys, including recording of the floor frames and carpenter's marks.

We also carried out the underfloor archaeology aspects of the project, recovering and recording several thousand artefacts, some dating back to the late medieval & Tudor periods.


St Mary the Virgin, Lakenheath

Project management of a multi-agency funded conservation, outreach, and interpretation project, based around the nationally important collection of medieval wall paintings found in the church.

The project received extensive media coverage, and was fully supported by a series of outreach and public engagement events.
