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 February 9th 2017, when Damian de Rosa will talk about what Cotswold Archaeology discovered when they carried out a pre-construction investigation at Kennel Farm at the top of Kempshott Hill.
