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‚Äôs 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 our 2015/16 winter lecture series see the  EHAS events page. Our first lecture of the year will be on October 10th 2015 on excavations of a roman burial near Baldock, by Keith FitzPatrick-Matthews. All lectures take place in Bengeo Parish Church Hall Duncombe Road (SG14 3DA) at 2.30 p.m. See lectures page for details.
