Welcome to CBA Wessex

CBA Wessex is one of several regional groups affiliated to the Council for British Archaeology.

CBA Wessex brings together people with enthusiasm for archaeology (whether as a general interest, an active pastime, or as a career) in Berkshire, the Channel Islands, Dorset, Hampshire, the Isle of Wight, and Wiltshire, an area intensely rich in archaeological landscapes, sites and historic buildings. Our interests embrace all periods – from prehistory to the present day and include industrial and maritime archaeology.

CBA Wessex arranges lectures, field visits, guided walks, study days and conferences and takes an active role in preserving and enhancing our heritage under the banner of Friends of Ancient Monuments (FOAM). We update our members on what is going on in the region in our twice yearly newsletter, our monthly e-newsletters and via our website.  You can also follow CBA Wessex on Facebook and Twitter.

If you would like to join CBA Wessex and support our work, you will find the benefits of membership varied and interesting with plenty of opportunities to get involved.
