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 April 13th 2017, Richard Massey of English Heritage will come to give us an update on the site at Kennel Farm, which is situated at the top of Kempshott Hill on the opposite side of the A30 from the Basingstoke Golf Course.
Please note that this is a change from our advertised programme, this lecture should have been given at our February meeting and has been re-scheduled.
Excavations at Kennel Farm
Our next meeting will be on Thursday 13th April 2017 at Church Cottage, starting
