Local Archaeological Groups

Drawing at Reigate Heath barrow cemeteryBeyond the county archaeological societies, the south-east region is home to numerous local societies focussing either on a particular geographic area or are set up as special interest groups, providing opportunities for those with an interest in the Romans or industrial archaeology for example. Many of these groups are actively participating in fieldwork, but also providing lecture series and workshops, so find out what’s going on in your area:
