Archaeology Section

The Archaeology Section aims to entertain and inform those who are concerned for the past and its material remains.

We organise an annual conference and a programme of lectures which keep members abreast of developments in archaeology, both within the county and beyond. Field trips are arranged to view current excavations and exhibitions and to visit some of the notable sites and monuments in Hampshire and adjoining counties.

Some of the work undertaken in the county is published in the Field Club's own Proceedings (Hampshire Studies) and Newsletter. If you have any contributions for the Archaeology Section of the Newsletter, please email them to
