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 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.

Please take a minute to explore our website and find out how you can become involved.
