Bristol and Region Archaeological Services was formed in 1992, having developed out of the original field archaeology team attached to Bristol Museum and Art Gallery. Field archaeologists were first employed by the museum in 1968, at first on a largely temporary basis until the first permanent team became established in the late 1970s.
This background gives the staff of BaRAS an unrivalled knowledge of the history and archaeology of the region, as well as an appreciation of the economics and development needs of the area, which informs every project in which the unit is involved.
As well as desk-based assessments, evaluations and excavations, BaRAS has staff able to carry out building surveys and artefact assessments and reports. In-house expertise in surveying, illustration, and report design & production all contribute to the provision of a well-rounded professional service to developers.
