The Derbyshire Archaeological Society was founded in 1878 to encourage interest in the County’s history and archaeology.

We run a regular programme of talks and visits and a number of lectures at Derby University on topics of local and national interest

In addition to publishing the annual Derbyshire Archaeological Journal, we also produce ‘Miscellany’, which focuses on local history and a Newsletter.

The programme of events is organised by the four sections of the Society who have a special interest in Archaeology, Local History, Architecture and Industrial Archaeology. When the opportunity arises, field work is organised by the Archaeological Research Group. The overall administration of the Society is run by its Council.

Full details of all our events, publications and contacts can be found via the menu together with membership information. The Stop Press page will notify readers of any (mercifully rare) changes to our programme and information on any relevant local or national events that may be of interest to you.

Our talks and lectures are open and free of charge to members and to the general public and we would hope that this would encourage future membership.
