Welcome...

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

***COVID 19 RESTRICTIONS: FIELD STUDIES MEETINGS AND LECTURES AT UNIVERSITY OF HULL CURRENTLY POSTPONED. ONLINE LECTURE PROGRAMME CURRENTLY BEING DELIVERED TO ERAS MEMBERS***

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.

    VISIT TO ROMAN VILLA SITE AT EASTFIELD - TUESDAY 24 AUGUST - 1030 AM

    We've been keeping up with the amazing pictures and articles relating to the high status Roman site discovered at Eastfield near Scarborough and we hope you have enjoyed the updates. MAP Archaeological Practice (MAP) have kindly offered ERAS members access to visit the site before it is reburied. The guided visit will take place at 1030 am on Tuesday 24 August. The site will be operational - busy with construction staff and archaeologists continuing excavations. The site can be very muddy and slippery when wet and is also over a large expanse of land - so a lot of walking over undulating ground is to be expected. Please obviously wear appropriate footwear. Anyone wishing to attend or with general questions about the visit should email Angela Fawcett at [email protected] This is an incredible opportunity to be one of the few to view the structural remains before they are reburied. https://www.thescarboroughnews.co.uk/.../in-pictures..
