Welcome to the Chester Archaeological Society. Our interests extend across the whole of the historic county of Cheshire, plus neighbouring areas, and embrace history, architecture and conservation as well as archaeology. Our activities include monthly lectures from the Autumn to the Spring, Summer excursions on demand, fieldwork projects, campaigning on local heritage issues, publication of an annual journal and a twice-yearly newsletter, and maintenance of our own specialist library.
