Welcome to the website of the West Midlands Regional Group of the Council for British Archaeology.
We cover the counties of Hereford, Worcester, Shropshire, Staffordshire, Warwickshire plus West Midlands. 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.
