We have to advise you that following a review, including the status of BaRAS as a non-core function, Bristol City Council have decided to discontinue with BaRAS as a trading unit of Bristol Museum and we are no longer accepting new commissions. The business will be wound down over the next few months, and will cease trading in mid-July.
We are in the process of contacting our clients, colleagues, suppliers and other relevant parties to advise them of the position. We would like to thank all of you for working with us in the past, and wish you all the best for the future.
Please proceed to the rest of the website for more information about BaRAS and its projects; this will remain available for the time being, although some details relating to commercial services have been removed.
If you have any queries between now and July please do not hesitate to contact us. Arrangements for enquiries after that date will be provided in due course.
BaRAS has unrivalled knowledge of Bristol having served both the city and the surrounding south-west for over 30 years. With a commitment to delivering work to a high standard, on time, and within budget, our well-rounded professional service to clients includes:
Two trenches were excavated in the car parking area to the rear of these properties. Not unexpectedly for this part of the city we revealed intact archaeological features.
Many Bristol citizens will be aware that City Hall (formerly called the Council House) has been undergoing a major refurbishment which is due to be finished this year.
Sometimes we go a long way and find very little! We travelled to Surrey to evaluate land around the northern half of the Brethren’s Meeting Hall.
A watching brief near Wincanton was undertaken prior to a housing development. A known Roman villa lies up-slope from the site.
Recent research for a study of these Georgian-fronted buildings in the south-west corner of the square revealed details of Bristol’s shoe manufacturing history.
BaRAS archaeologists have recently carried out a survey of the remains of the castle keep in Castle Park, Bristol.
