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.
For those of you who have missed lectures, there are some archived recordings on our YouTube channel which can be found here https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCG1s6z3dZQoUMHEMhMl6MkQ
The next lecture in our 2023/2024 season will be at 7:30 pm on Thursday 14th December when Henning Wilkens will be guiding us through a “show and tell” of flint tools, some of which he has made and some of which he has found. Members are encouraged to bring along their own worked flint for identification.
