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.
Our next meeting is on April 11th when Dr Jackie McKinley of Wessex Archaeology, a renowned human bones expert who has appeared on Time Team, will tell us about the ways in which the dead were honoured in Bronze Age Wessex.
