***COVID 19 RESTRICTIONS: FIELD STUDIES MEETINGS AND LECTURES AT UNIVERSITY OF HULL CURRENTLY POSTPONED. ONLINE LECTURE PROGRAMME CURRENTLY BEING DELIVERED TO ERAS MEMBERS***
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 at St Nicholas Community Centre, Holmechurch Lane, Beverley.
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.
In view of the lack of field activity at the moment, and the popularity of the online lecture programme, we have decided to extend the virtual lecture series. Therefore, we are happy to welcome Dr James Gerrard of The University of Newcastle who will present a discussion on the rediscovery, re-evaluation and probable find spot of the Knaresborough Hoard of 1864. The presentation is open to ERAS members only and a digital link will be sent to ERAS members for whom we have email addresses.
