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.

We hold monthly meetings from September to June each year, and these incorporate a lecture on a archaeological or historical topic. Our next meeting will be in April and will feature a lecture by one of our members Barbara Large, who will be talking about the outcome of her researches into the Basingstoke Union Workhouse, which was sited where the Hampshire clinic is now.
