Since 1885, the Hampshire Field Club and Archaeological Society has been the county-wide organisation which has led the study of Hampshire, its environment and heritage. It is not bound by tradition, however, and is constantly evolving to provide the best possible awareness of and access to Hampshire's heritage.
