Merseyside Archaeological Society brings together those interested in the archaeology and heritage of Merseyside. The MAS was founded in 1976, and is an independent charity funded by our members' subscriptions.
Our interests cover the often-elusive remains of the prehistoric period to the iconic monuments of the Industrial Revolution in the Liverpool and Merseyside region. You are sure to find something of interest - whether you are an amateur or professional archaeologist or interested in your local archaeology and history.
The Society also encourages and advertises opportunities for education and participation in archaeology via courses and fieldwork.
From September to April a monthly programme of lectures, given by guest speakers at The Quaker Meeting House in central Liverpool, covers a diverse programme of subjects related to archaeology.
During the summer there are several full-day field trips to archaeological sites, and weekend trips to visit areas further afield.
The Society also organises periodic one-day conferences.
Through a regular newsletter members receive information about future events. Reports on archaeological work in the region appear in the Society's Journal and members qualify for discounts on Society publications.
