Events

ERAS leads and organise activities for those interested in archaeology in our area. Experts are on hand at our monthly field studies meetings to guide members through hands-on activities. During the summer months our experts on occasion offer walks or visits to local sites of archaeological interest.  During the winter months, local and visiting speakers give talks as part of our winter lecture series.

Field studies meetings are usually at 7:30pm on the first Wednesday of each month in an upstairs room at St Nicholas Community Centre, Holmechurch Lane, Beverley. No need to book - just come along - but do check our Events page to check that a different event hasn't been arranged as we do like to offer different experiences in our Field Studies programme.

Lectures usually start at 7:30pm and are held in the Wilberforce Building, Hull University, Cottingham Road, Hull. There is an entrance fee for non-members of £2.

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.

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