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 1971 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.
The next lecture in our 2023/2024 season will be at 7:30 pm on Monday 11th March when David Hopkins will return to show us how Basingstoke’s past has shaped the towns present in terms of street layouts and surviving buildings and their fabric.
