Local History Section

The aim of this section is to encourage and promote the study of local history in Hampshire, both through the section's own activities and liaison with local history societies throughout the county. 

We organize an annual lecture, spring symposium, summer outing and outing and AGM in the autumn often with the help of a local society as well as other occasional courses and events.

Articles on Local History in the Newsletter include book reviews, details of new accessions in the Hampshire Record Office and new local publications, and brief pieces on aspects of Hampshire's history.

The Section has close ties with the Hampshire Record Office and with the local history section of the County Library.

Current programme: a full listing of all events organised by the different sections of the Hampshire Field Club and Archaeological Society.
