Our events

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.  Our lectures are held in the Council Chamber at the Shirehall, Abbey Foregate, Shrewsbury, SY2 6ND, on Saturday afternoons.  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 this will appear in our Winter Programme (last year’s was held at Adcote School – see our Past events page).
