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 next lecture in our 2023/2024 season will be at 7:30 pm on Monday 13th May when Sarah Somerville who is the visitor manager at Shaw House in Newbury will be telling us about the history and story of the house. Please note that this will be a Zoom meeting as our normal venue is unavailable. If you are a member you will be receiving the details, if you are not, then please get in touch.
