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 next meeting is on June 14th when after a brief AGM, Kay Ainsworth, formerly of HCMAS, will give us a talk on the archaeology of Malta. Kay grew up in Malta and has returned many times, often leading a group around the prehistoric temple sites.
The Archeology of the Maltese Islands
Our next meeting will be on Thursday 14th June 2018 at Church Cottage, starting
at 7.30 pm
