Administrative History SUAT Ltd was founded in 1982 and inherited the staff and projects of its predecessor, the Urban Archaeology Unit (founded in 1978). The primary objective of SUAT was to examine the origins, function and development of towns in Scotland and their hinterlands through excavation, fieldwork and research. The arrival of developer-funded archaeology in the early 1990s led to the expansion of this remit to include rural sites. SUAT worked closely with Historic Scotland, local authority archaeologists, developers, architects and engineers. Community outreach and professional research were a key component of the organisation’s work. SUAT ceased operations in 2009.

Accruals No further accruals are expected.
