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 final lecture in our 2023/2024 season will be at 7:30 pm on Monday 10th June. After a brief AGM, Bob Clarke will talk to us about the background to his latest book “The Basingstoke Cornfield Murder” which is the latest volume in our Basingstoke Histories series. We will be selling copies of the book for £6 on the evening.
