The Scarborough Archaeological and Historical Society, originally the Scarborough and District Archaeological Society was founded in 1947. Since then, the SAHS has had a long and distinguished history. Their excavations have included a Romano-British site at Crossgates, Ayton Castle and many other sites in and around Scarborough itself. They were winners of the Pitt-Rivers Award of the British Archaeological Awards in 1990 for work by the voluntary sector and runners-up in 2000. The Society won an award from the Association for Industrial Archaeology for the Saltwick Alum Works project. More recently they
have been excavating on the Medieval and earlier settlement at Hanging Grimston. The talk will be delivered by a leading member of the society, yet to be decided at the time of going to press.
Entry is free for ERAS members. A small charge of £2 is payable for guests. The presentation will be streamed digitally for ERAS members for those unable to attend.
