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 meeting is on September 13th, marking the start of our 2018/19 lecture season. We will be welcoming the return of Richard Osgood who will be telling us about the work of Operation Nightingale, an initiative to help the recovery of injured servicemen by involving them in archaeological projects.
