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 final lecture meeting before our summer break is on 9th June, when Paul Vickers from the Aldershot Military Museum will be giving a talk on the Great Wellington Statue. Before the talk we shall hold our AGM.
