The Prehistoric Society (External organisation)

Activity: MembershipMembership in special-interest organisation


The Prehistoric Society's interests are world wide and extend from the earliest human origins to the emergence of written records.

An active programme of events – lectures, study tours, day- and weekend conferences, and research weekends – allows members to participate fully in the Society and to meet other members and interested parties. The study excursions are lead by professionals and those conducting recent research in the area – they provide an opportunity to engage with the sites and their researchers. Day visits and short study tours are also a part of a wide and diverse programme.

The Society produces three publications: the annual peer-reviewed journal, the Proceedings of the Prehistoric Society; the topical newsletter, PAST, which is published in April, July and November; and the Research Papers monograph series. In addition, the Society publishes on-line book reviews.

Annual Research, Conference and Student Travel Awards are available to members to enable excavations, research, visits to conferences and travel abroad to sites and museums.
