Welcome to the Shropshire Archaeological and Historical Society

Shropshire, on the border between upland Wales and lowland England, has had a complex and turbulent history.  This fascinating past is reflected in a wealth of archaeological sites of all types and periods and in a rich collection of archives.

The Shropshire Archaeological and Historical Society aims to foster interest in Shropshire’s rich and varied archaeological heritage and to promote and publish original research into the county’s exciting history and prehistory.  Why not join us in helping to preserve our past for the future?

What we do:

The Society publishes papers, articles, books and booklets on the history and archaeology of Shropshire.  We organise a varied programme of events throughout the year, including talks, guided walks and visits to historic sites.  We also help to raise funds and can make small grants to help preserve and record Shropshire’s archaeological heritage and to assist original research into our past.
