Covid-19 update

WEAG is continuously monitoring the situation with regard to Corona-virus, our principal objective being the safety and well-being of our members, visitors and students. In line with most similar organisations, we currently cannot hold meetings in the normal venue, and our Archaeology activities have been temporarily suspended.

However in order to maintain contact with members, and to continue to offer our usual presentations, a schedule of lectures have been organised that can be attended on-line. For further details see the EVENTS page.

The next lecture meeting

The next ‘meeting’ will be the Rudge lecture. This is an annual event to acknowledge the founding of WEAG by Dr Earnest Rudge in April 1948.

Monday 10th May 2021 A talk by Mike ‘Mr Stonehenge’ Parker Pearson.

This will be a Zoom meeting which is open to everyone (WEAG member or not).
For details of meeting visit the Events page
If you are not a member but would like hear the lecture, then email enquiries@weag.org.uk.

Imminent publication of a book on Old Copped Hall

WEAG together with the Copped Hall Archaeological Project are to publish a book by Norah Carlin about the Old Copped Hall. Norah has revisited the original documents in her research to reach the real story. Her ability to read Norman French came in very handy for this research. The book covers the people who lived at the Old Copped Hall and their lives. The book will be available late Autumn. More details later.

Past Activities

A summary and photographs of the activities can be found in the Copped Hall Archaeology 2018 Report.

The Experience Weekend of 2017 provided an introduction to Geophysics techniques – a report on the Geophysics techniques and results is available to view.

A report on the Experience Weekends and Field Schools in 2018 is available to view.
