Huddersfield and District Archaeological Society

Over 60 years of active archaeology in West Yorkshire


A Winter Lecture Series is held, usually, on the first Friday of each month from October to March, attracting speakers from the top-rank of professional archaeologists and researchers. The illustrated talks are usually held in the Heritage Quay at the University of Huddersfield; non-members are welcome.

The Society publishes occasional books and reports on work done and a regular supply of information and items of interest is sent to members by email. (Or by post if requested).

As well as research and excavation work, the Society organises excursions and social activities. It has a library of specialist books and an extensive archive of the Society’s archaeological activities over the past 60 years which is available for inspection at the Heritage Quay, University of Huddersfield. More details on ‘Latest News’ page.

New members are encouraged to be involved in all the Society’s activities; including exploration and excavations.
