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 our Christmas social on December 8th, this year we will be hosting the Reading Morreys who will be giving a short talk on the history of Morris dancing, hopefully followed by some audience participation.
Our next lecture based meeting will be on January 12th 2017, and will feature a talk by Katie Hinds, who is the Finds Liason Officer for the Portable Anitiquities scheme in Hampshire. Katie will bring us up to date on recent finds in the county.
