Meetings and Events

The Group holds two meetings each year, in the Spring and Autumn.

Our Spring meetings are hosted by one or more of the local societies in the region and are an opportunity to hear about work in their area and visit a nearby site of historical interest.

Recent Spring meetings have been held at Mellor, the site of award-winning excavations of its Iron Age hillfort, Eccleston, near the Roman and Dark Age site of Heronbridge, south of Chester, and at Timperley, near Altrincham, the site of a medieval moated hall.

Our AGM is combined with the Spring meeting. This is your chance to hear what your committee has done over the past year, express your views and take part in electing a new committee.

Our Autumn conference is devoted to an archaeological theme relevant to our region. Speakers may be members of the Group or specialists in the topic.

Recent themes have been the study of wood from excavations, the archaeology of slavery and the economy of Roman north west England.
 

Next Meeting: The next CBANW meeting is entitled Castles to Castellations and will be held on Saturday 8 November 2014 at the Grosvenor Museum in Chester. A programme and booking form can be found here.

Merseyside Archaeological Society is hosting a conference entitled 'The Archaaeology of Merseyside - recent work in the region and beyond' on Saturday 18th October at Liverpool Museum. Further details and a booking form can be found here
