“The Maryland Archaeological Conservation Laboratory has been working with Dovetail since 2012 on all manner of archaeological preservation projects. Their use of radiographic techniques in the understanding and curation of archaeological collections provides both analysis and cost savings for their clients. Dovetail has a true commitment to best practices in the care of cultural heritage.”
–Nichole Doub, Head Conservator, Maryland Archaeological Conservation Laboratory

“I would highly recommend Dovetail to anyone in need of archaeology or architectural history services. We have had extensive dealings with the firm, and they consistently deliver excellent work, on time, and for attractive rates. One especially appealing feature of Dovetail is their ability to craft exactly what is needed to gain approvals to move forward on projects. They are certainly a value-added company.”
–Marc Hamel, SouthEast High Speed Rail Project Manager, NCDOT

“Dovetail’s staff is professional, courteous, and efficient. They provide good work for a fair price. In my opinion, this firm produces some of the best cultural resource work in the state.”
–Wendy Wheatcraft, Preservation Planner, Fauquier County, Virginia

“Dovetail has done exceptional work for us and has communicated well with staff. Their digs are well organized and, importantly, they interact with our visitors. Their reports are thorough and they remain interested in the site, connecting us to findings at other sites.”
–Leslie L. Buhler, Executive Director, Tudor Place Historic House and Garden, Washington DC

“Geo-Technology Associates, Inc. (GTA), a national geotechnical and environmental consulting firm, has contracted with Dovetail for Section 106 compliance consulting on multiple large scale projects. Many of these projects had very aggressive fast paced schedules. Dovetail is very responsive and consistently delivers quality products on time. Kerri and Mike are very knowledgeable of the regulatory framework and efficiently manage projects to streamline the review process. GTA looks forward to continuing to team with them on future projects.”
–Andy Stansfield, Associate, Geo-Technology Associates, Inc.

“From the moment we started working together in 2008, Dovetail Cultural Resource Group has impressed me with their efficient, professional manner and “can do” attitude. They have completed multiple cultural resource surveys on the Southeast High Speed Rail corridor from Richmond, VA, to Raleigh, NC – a study area that includes more than 150 eligible or listed historic architectural resources and 15 archeology sites. Kerri Barile and her staff have repeatedly developed high quality reports that were well-received by both state historic preservation offices. Dovetail’s insights and recommendations have kept the Section 106 process moving smoothly and helped gain the trust of our consulting parties. I enthusiastically recommend them!
