The Abingdon Area Archaeology and History Society, founded in 1968 and widely-known as ‘AAAHS’, is THE group for anyone interested in archaeology and local history in Abingdon and beyond. The Society has a Constitution and a GDPR Privacy statement.

We organise monthly talks on archaeological and historical topics, particularly relating to Abingdon and Oxfordshire. Our Local History Group meets two or three times a year, when members talk about their own projects and topics of local interest. We also organise visits to local places of historic interest in the summer months for AAAHS members.

   We encourage members to pursue their own research projects. AAAHS has a wealth of knowledge, and is always happy to share this with others. We also collaborate with other local bodies, such as Abingdon Museum and the Civic Society.

Do consider joining AAAHS! You can join at one of our monthly meetings, or e-mail us via this website. You can also download a Membership Form here. 
You can also follow us on X/Twitter and on Facebook
