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 March 9th 2017, when local historian and BAHS member Derek Spruce will talk to us about Jane Austen’s houses. This lecture will help us mark the 200th anniversary of Jane’s death.
Jane Austen’s Houses
Our next meeting will be on Thursday 9th March 2017 at Church Cottage, starting at 7.30 pm
