A-Z LECTURES and CATEGORIES

Area Society: County Durham

Category County Durham

'The Architectural and Archaeological Society of Durham and Northumberland was founded in 1861 and has, since that time, pursued an active programme of lectures, field trips and publication. Based in Durham, but with interests throughout the region, it aims to provide an opportunity for all those interested in archaeology and architectural history to find out more, visit places of interest and experience hands on activities. There are monthly meetings from September to June, with public lectures covering areas of local, regional and international interest. Most lectures take place in Durham, but the AGM in May is generally held elsewhere in the region and is combined with a trip to a site of particular interest to the Society.'
