Welcome to East Herts Archaeological Society.

We are one of the oldest archaeological societies in this part of the country with publications and records that go back to 1899. Our aims are to foster interest in the county’s archaeology and history, to promote and assist in  excavations and historical investigations and to help protect ancient buildings and monuments in East Herts.

For details of summer excursions see the EHAS events page. Look out for our next event - our AGM, and the Gordon Moodey Lecture on “Rediscovering the Cheapside Hoard” by MoL curator Hazel Forsyth. Saturday 25th April at 2.30pm, Great Amwell Parish Hall, Hillside Lane, SG12 9SH

In addition, come to The President’s Walk,a guided tour of Panshanger Park by Anne Rowe, on Saturday 16 May. Meet at the car park at The Stables, 2.30pm.
