Hunter Archaeological Society

The Hunter Archaeological Society, named after antiquarian Joseph Hunter (1783-1861), is one of the oldest archaeological societies in the region, having been founded in 1912 by a group of professional men concerned about threats to heritage around the Sheffield area. Its area of operation covers South Yorkshire and north-east Derbyshire.

The Society runs a programme of talks from September to April each year in the Diamond Building at the University of Sheffield, to which all are welcome. Members also lead walks and arrange visits to excavations and sites, often to places which are otherwise inaccessible. It is also possible to get involved in projects such as survey work and site condition monitoring.
