Dearne Valley Archaeology Group

Wath upon Dearne

Background

Dearne Valley Archaeological Group meets every second Wednesday of each month. It is a community group based at Wath Trinity Methodist Church Hall, but has members from Barnsley, Rotherham and Sheffield.

Aims

We aim to provide opportunities in the community for members to develop archaeological skills and improve knowledge and understanding of the subject by providing top class speakers. Over the last year guest speakers have included Professor Joann Fletcher (University of York) and Alex Sotheran (Elmet Archaeological Services), and time periods covered have ranged from Prehistoric to post-medieval, across a variety of themes.

Everyone is welcome to our monthly meetings and our conference, and we are always looking for new members to get involved. If you are interested then why not come along – you never know where the journey may take you!
