Barbican Research Associates is the UK’s leading independent consultancy specialising in the analysis of archaeological finds and post-excavation management. Our business is based on a tradition of quality, reliability and innovation.
The company was established in 2000 when five like-minded archaeologists met in a café outside the Museum of London to talk about the future of finds research in British archaeology - a few cappuccinos later and Barbican Research Associates was a reality.
At Barbican we aim to publish truly integrated research for the archaeological community and to promote the study of the past to as wide an audience as possible. This website contains details of the services we offer and summaries of some of the large projects Barbican has been involved in since 2000. The Resources tab on the left-hand column provides links and contact details for a variety of finds groups, archaeological societies, bibliographies for finds specialists, as well as a host of interesting websites.
Currently we are managing the research on the Staffordshire Hoard of Anglo-Saxon gold. If you would like to know more go to the projects section.
We hope you enjoy our website – please contact us if you would like more information about our services or archaeological finds work in general.
