About - us


Barbican Research Associates Limited was set up by Hilary Cool, Jerry Evans, Peter Guest, Quita Mould and Stephanie Rátkai to provide an integrated post-excavation service. Between us we have well over 100 years of experience of post-excavation work ranging from prehistory to post-medieval archaeology. We are all senior figures in our areas of expertise, publish widely and are experienced project managers.


Hilary Cool works mainly with small finds and vessel glass of the Roman period. At present she is working on the glass from Reading University's excavations in Insula IX at Silchester and NAA's excavations on the A1 road widening at Catterick. She manages our Staffordshire Hoard research project.


Jerry Evans is a pottery specialist working mainly with Roman material.


Peter Guest is an archaeologist and numismatist specialising in the Roman period.


Quita Mould works with small finds and has a special expertise in metalwork and leather. She works across periods and is currently dealing with leather from a number of shipwreck sites, the iron from the Chester Amphitheatre and the Saxon settlement at Sedgefield.


Stephanie Rátkai is a pottery specialist who works with material of post-Roman to early modern date.  She manages our Birmingham Archaeology Digital Archive project.
