Merseyside Archaeological Society brings together those interested in the archaeology and heritage of Merseyside. The MAS was founded in 1977, 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, fieldwork and excavation.
Over the winter 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.
This is followed by several full-day field trips to archaeological sites during the summer, and weekend trips to visit areas further afield.
The Society also organises periodic one-day conferences. This year's conference will be held at the Museum of Liverpool on 13 October 2018.
Through a regular newsletter members receive information about future events. Reports on archaeological work in the region appear in the Society's occasional Journal and members qualify for discounts on Society publications.
Join in the conversation, or just leave a message on social media, via our MAS Facebook page or tweet @MerseyArchSoc.
