CBA Wessex Events

CBA Wessex offers a wide range of study days on topics such as pottery, bone and flint recognition.

We organise field trips and guided walks led by experts in the archaeology of Wessex, where you can find out more about your local area and meet people with a similar interest in the historic environment.

Each November we hold our Annual Conference with a themed topic. Past conferences have included topics on Ritual & Religion, Warriors, Weaponry & Warfare in Wessex and Science in Archaeology (‘From Bones to Drones’) all with lectures by distinguished speakers.

Both members and non-members are welcome to attend our events, but as a member (which costs from just £10 per year) you will benefit from discounted rates.

Bookings can be made online, but please remember, your place is not confirmed until we have received payment.
