Welcome...

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

***COVID 19 RESTRICTIONS: 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.

    FIELD STUDIES RETURNS

    Field Studies is returning!!! Our last meeting was 4 March 2020 - so we have had to reacquaint ourselves with the pottery assemblage from kilns in Skiff Lane, Holme on Spalding Moor, a Romano British site the Society excavated in 1996. We still have plenty of pottery sherds to record and we need your help. We look forward to welcoming back our regulars (don't worry - we'll all be a bit rusty) and we also extend an invite to new and existing members who are interested in coming along and having a go. It's a very relaxed and sociable evening - and you will be made very welcome as well as given training in the recording methods. We meet on the first Wednesday of every month at 7.30 pm - commencing 3 November 2021 - in an upstairs room at St Nicholas Parish Hall on Holmechurch Lane in Beverley. We recommend parking on a side street near the venue. We are normally finished by 9 pm. No need to book just come along - or message if you have any queries.
