Abingdon Area Archaeology and History Society

The Abingdon Area Archaeology and History Society

Since its foundation in 1968 (see AAAHS Constitution), AAAHS has been the principal meeting point for all who have an interest in the past of Abingdon and its region.
The Society organises monthly lectures by acknowledged authorities on history and archaeology relating to Abingdon and its surrounding area. 
It also encourages its members to pursue their own research interests and its archaeological group, the longest established, has carried out numerous excavations in and around Abingdon. The Local History Group was established in 2000 and since then has taken a number of initiatives, notably including the Abingdon Buildings and People section of the Abingdon-on-Thames Town Council website. In 2022, with part funding from The National Lottery Heritage Fund it produced the acclaimed AAAHS online interactive map of archaeology and historic buildings in Abingdon.**
 If you want to join the AAAHS, there is a Membership Form on this website, or you can contact any of the committee members. 
 You can also access the AAAHS Facebook Page.
**The AAAHS online interactive map has been shortlisted for the CBA Archaeological Achievement Award 2023 in the category 'public dissemination or presentation'.

Visitors are welcome at our meetings - suggested donation £3.
