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.

For those of you who have missed lectures, there are some archived recordings on our YouTube channel which can be found hereĀ https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCG1s6z3dZQoUMHEMhMl6MkQ

The first lecture in our 2022/2023 season will be at 7:30 pm on Thursday 8th September. We will be launching the latest book in the Basingstoke Histories series, Fun and Frolics and the author, Bob Clarke will be talking about the social history of entertainment and amusements in Basingstoke.
