Field meetings are made in the summer, under expert leadership, to archaeological sites (including excavations in progress), historic houses, churches and museums etc, both within the county and in adjacent areas. There is normally a small charge for field meetings, and advance booking is sometimes required – full details appear in our Summer Programme.
Winter meetings are held once a month, normally on the second Saturday of each month. Local researchers and nationally known archaeologists and historians give lectures on local and more-than-local topics. The talks are usually free, but donations are always welcome! We also have a winter social meeting in early December at a different and interesting venue. Details of these will appear in our Winter Programme.
The 2021 AGM: We will be holding our AGM for the years 2019 to 2020 and 2020 to 2021 on Saturday 25th of September, at the Gateway, in Shrewsbury. Doors open 1:30pm, AGM at 2:00 pm.
The AGM will be followed by the AGM Lecture at 2.30p.m. This year the lecture will be given by Peter Reavill, Finds Liaison Officer, British Museum’s Portable Antiquities Scheme on “The Sun Pendant: Shropshire’s Finest Bronze Age Treasure”
We are delighted to have managed to arrange an in-person AGM, and even more importantly, a talk. Furthermore, Peter Reavill’s lecture on the Shropshire Sun Pendant has been arranged to mark the opening of the British Museum’s Spotlight Loan Exhibition “Gathering Light” at Shrewsbury Museum and Art Gallery on the 10th of September at which the pendant will be on display for the first time ever. https://www.shropshiremuseums.org.uk/event/british-museum-spotlight-loan-exhibition-gathering-light/
