The following aims are taken from our Constitution.

The Group is established to pursue the following objects in the counties of Herefordshire, Shropshire, Staffordshire, Warwickshire, Worcestershire and the 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.

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.

Our supporters:

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.
