Our Society was formed in 1991 by the union of two much older societies - Andover Archaeology Society founded in 1965 and Andover Local History Society founded in 1979. We continue the traditions of those societies, promoting an interest in local history and working to preserve and protect features and items of historic and archaeological interest ... Our annual Dacre Lecture is a public event and is given by an archaeologist or historian of national standing.'

Our membership includes amateur and professional archaeologists, but the vast majority of members are simply those who are fascinated by the history, archaeology, buildings and ancient sites in the area in which they live ...
