Welcome to the home page of the Norfolk and Norwich Archaeological Society.
The Society is one of the oldest archaeological societies in the country. Throughout its history it has attracted all those interested in the archaeology and history of Norfolk. Membership has included amateur and professional archaeologists, but the vast majority of members are simply those who are fascinated by the history, archaeology, buildings and ancient sites in the area in which they live.
The Society's aim is to promote the study of the science of archaeology, which includes:
- the study of the history, architecture and antiquities of Norfolk
- the collection and publication of information on the ancient art and monuments of the County
- the encouragement of individuals and public bodies in undertaking research and excavations
- the prevention of injury to and destruction of all kinds of objects of archaeological value.
The Society offers a programme of monthly lectures every autumn and winter. In the warmer months, it organises visits to sites, houses and churches in various parts of Norfolk and further afield.
Norfolk Archaeology, the major academic journal for the archaeology and history of Norfolk, is published annually and is sent free of charge to full members. The Society has an extensive library which members can use for their own research.
