The archaeology of this region is as diverse as its landscape, from Palaeolithic flints in Birmingham, through the origins of the Industrial Revolution in the Ironbridge Gorge to World War II air raid shelters in Wolverhampton.

We are an independent charity funded by our supporters' subscriptions. Our committee is elected at the AGM and meets six times a year.


We fulfil these roles through our meetings, newsletters, journal and this website, as well as working behind the scenes to protect and enhance the historic environment through advocacy.

If you care for the future of the past, and want to learn more about archaeology outside your own area, the Council for British Archaeology is the organisation for you.
