The East Riding Archaeological Society is an active society of about 250 members. It aims to promote interest in archaeology, both in the local area and further a field, through a programme of lectures, excursions, publications and fieldwork.

Lecture Programme

The East Riding Archaeological Society holds monthly lectures from September to April in the Wilberforce Building at Hull University on Cottingham Road. Topics vary from items of local interest to those of national importance.

Field Studies Group

In addition to the lecture meetings there is also an informal Field Studies Group that meets on the first Wednesday of every month throughout the year. There are opportunities for members to take part in archaeological digs and recent excavations have taken place on a Romano-British site at Arram.


ERAS members are kept up to date with local and national archaeology through newsletters published two or three times a year. Included in the the annual subscription is the society's major publication, The East Riding Archaeologist (Retail price usually in the region of £20). Early additions of this publication and other regional books can be purchase (see publications for sale).
