ERAS leads and organise activities for those interested in archaeology in our area. Experts lead our monthly walks. During the winter months, local and visiting speakers give talks as part of our winter lecture series.

Lectures usually start at 7:30pm and are held in the Wilberforece Building, Hull University, Cottingham Road, Hull. There is an entrance fee for non-members of £1.

Additional special events are planned every year to allow members to get to know each other. We also run our own excavations, research and survey projects which members are encouraged to become involved in.

Field studies meetings are usually at 7:30pm on the first Wednesday of each month at St Nicholas Community Centre, Holmechurch Lane, Beverley.

Please use either calendar below to find out more about our events.

    Val Fairhurst has kindly organised our Summer Residential trip to South Wales. Bookings and deposits need to be made before the end of January so no time for procrastination! Our ERAS trips are always friendly, well-organised and jam-packed with options for sight-seeing experiences.


    ERAS trip to South Wales, 7-10th June 2018

    Proposed  itinerary

    Thurs, 7th June. Drive to Monmouth with time there to visit Castle and Museum. Drive to Beaufort Hotel Chepstow (only 2-star but central location). 2 course meal included in price for this night only.

    Friday 8th June
    Drive to Ogmore Castle (just south of Brigend) with lunch in pub there. 
    Visits on the way there, or back: Caerwent Roman town Tinkinswood Burial Chamber, possibly Chepstow Castle and Bulwarks camp at end of day.

    Sat 9th June
    Caerleon Roman fortress, Museum, Baths and amphitheatre, lunch in Caerleon. Tintern Abbey in later afternoon.

    Sun 10th June
    Drive to Bristol, visit HMS Great Britain
    Return home


    single room £390

    double room: £290 pp,

    Accommodation is B&B in the Beaufort Hotel Chepstow, except for the first night, when a 2-course dinner is included. It you wish to cut costs there is a highly-recommended hostel in Chepstow (Greenman’s Backpackers): if you wish to choose this option, please contact me for a coach-only price. Lunches and entrance charges are not included, but some sites are free, and I will check for party rates.

    I realise I’ve only provided the briefest of details, but I need to get the coach and hotel booked, as Chepstow is a popular town. I do need a deposit of £80 to secure a place. At present, this will be returnable if your booking can be transferred to someone else, but will become non-returnable by the end of January, as I will have to confirm the rooms and coach.

    Cheques to V.Fairhurst, 57 All Hallows Rd, Walkington, Beverley, HU17 8SH


    I will keep you updated on further details as available.
