Our society is for everyone interested in the archaeology of Hull and the East Riding of Yorkshire.

For over 50 years we have been working to bring together amateur archaeologists, professionals in a range of fields, and all those interested in our area’s past and the preservation of our heritage.

We currently have over 250 members. Our aim is to promote interest in archaeology through events, fieldwork, publications and lectures.

We hope to keep the community up-to-date with news and events through our regular newsletters and this website.

ERAS also produces 'East Riding Archaeologist'. Each edition provides analysis and information about archaeology in the area. A catalogue of past editions can be downloaded from our website - click here.

    MESSAGE FROM ALISON AT FFWAP:   Please be advised that it has been decided to postpone the remaining FFWAP talks due to the coronavirus outbreak.   The talks planned for 7th April, 2nd June and 30th June will now be held when this pandemic is considered to be over.   Magnetometry surveying has also been suspended because of the communal handling of the equipment.   I will advise when alternative dates for the remaining talks have been arranged.

    With the uncertainty around the current Coronavirus situation, we feel we have a duty of care not to expose our members to potential infection. With this in mind we are cancelling lecture meetings at Hull University, including next months AGM, and our field studies meetings in Beverley until further notice. At the moment we are hoping that we will be back to normal in September and can hold the AGM then. We will have to see how things progress, but we are hoping that our summer events can still go ahead. We will keep you informed as best we can.
