Welcome to the home page of the Lancaster Archaeological and Historical Society. The society was founded in 1973 and currently has around 100 members. The society holds lecture meetings from September to April on the last Thursday of the month with topics alternating between history and archaeology. Field trips to sites of historical and archaeological interest are made during the summer. The Society's official journal Contrebis is published annually and contains articles on archaeology and local history in Lancashire and the North West of England.
On this site we have a programme of events, details of field trips and how to join the Society. You can view contents and sample articles from our journal, Contrebis, including the full text of early issues. Try exploring some of Lancaster's past in the virtual tour of historic Lancaster.
