Southeastern Archeological Services, Inc. was formed in 1983 by Thomas H. Gresham, Chad O. Braley, and W. Dean Wood.  The company is now owned and directed by Gresham (President) and Braley (Vice-President) who serve as principal investigator on most projects.  Almost all projects are directed by one of six permanent staff archeologists.  Projects dealing with historic structures are directed by architectural historian Monica Callahan.  Company personnel have directly participated in over 500 archeological projects in Georgia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Florida, Alabama, Mississippi, Tennessee, Kentucky, the U.S. Virgin Islands and overseas.  With their education and experience, all staff and associate archeologists meet the professional standards set by the U.S. Department of Interior and the Society of Professional Archaeologists. 

The company’s location is strategic; Athens is an academic and research-oriented community, supporting the University of Georgia, which houses the Georgia State Archaeological Site and Manuscript Files, as well as the University of Georgia Libraries.  The community also provides a wide range of support services and facilities.  Athens is centrally located in the southeastern United States, only an hour from Atlanta, the regional center for many governmental agencies.  Expertise in the following disciplines is available directly through Southeastern Archeological Services and its local subcontractors:
