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.
Our next meeting will be on the 14th November when Miles Russell will be talking about the project he has been leading investigating the Iron Age settlement in Winterbourne Kingston, Dorset, that has become known as Duropolis.
