The Basingstoke Archaeological and Historical Society is a charity whose aims are to promote the study and understanding of the Archaeology and History of Basingstoke and its surrounding area.
We were established in 1970 and have been actively involved in Archaeological and Historical research projects within the Basingstoke and North Hampshire area ever since. As well as practical project work, we also organise regular visits and tours to explore places of interest further afield.
Society Lecture Meetings
We hold monthly meetings from September to June each year, and these incorporate a lecture on a archaeological or historical topic.
Our next lecture is about a turbulent period of English history at the beginning of the century that led up to the Norman invasion of 1066.
‘Aethelred the Unready’ and ‘Cnut the Great’
Dr Ryan Lavell – Winchester University
Our next meeting will be on Thursday 10th November 2016 at Church Cottage, starting at 7.30 pm
