The Wareham and District Archaeology & Local History Society was formed in 1985. We are a friendly group of like-minded people from all walks of life, who are brought together by our shared interest in archaeology, local history and heritage. The society offers a diverse lecture programme of ten monthly meetings, from September through to June each year. Our speakers vary from university lecturers to world-renowned authorities. We also organise visits and guided walks during the summer months.
Meetings take place at the Furzebrook Village Hall, Furzebrook, Wareham BH20 5AR, on the third Wednesday of the month, at 7.30pm; with the exception of the December meeting when it is held on the first Wednesday.
So, whether you’re an armchair archaeologist pining for Time Team and you just want to sit back and listen, or whether you are a professional in your field and have something to share, come and join us! Visitors to lectures are always welcome for the small charge of £3. Otherwise, become a member for the great price of £10 per year – that’s just £1 per meeting.
