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 here https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCG1s6z3dZQoUMHEMhMl6MkQ
The second lecture in our 2021/2022 season will be at 7:30 pm on Thursday 11th November when David Ashby of Winchester University will be talking to us about his work researching the valley surrounding Stanford in the Vale.
Please note that this lecture will be held Chuch Cottage, please make sure that you bring a face mask with you. We will also attempt to ventillate the meeting room so it may be as well to come in warm clothing. There will also be a Zoom option available.
