Archaeo was established in 1996 as one of Queensland’s first privately owned cultural heritage consultancies. While providing consultancy services across the full range of Indigenous (Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander), historic and built cultural heritage, Archaeo soon found itself fulfilling an additional role in the provision of employment, engagement and cultural heritage agreement implementation services for both Traditional Owner Groups and proponents across Queensland.
The company expanded substantially in the mid-2000s, including opening its Cairns and Fraser Coast offices and the incorporation of the respected north Queensland firm Gordon Grimwade and Associates. Converge was created in 2007 to provide clearer separation between the company’s Traditional Owner engagement and employment services (Archaeo) and the cultural heritage consultancy wing of the company (Converge). In recent years, further developments and diversification of services has seen the formation of ArchaeoConverge and a more formalised separation of the services provide by both Archaeo and Converge.
Today, ArchaeoConverge represents one of Queensland’s oldest and most respected cultural heritage consultancy and Traditional Owner engagement companies, with a highly experienced and cohesive team of professionals located across Queensland, northern New South Wales and the Northern Territory.
