Welcome The Society was formed in 1961 - it grew out of the West Cornwall Field Club, itself founded in 1935 by a group of enthusiasts who were studying the archaeology of West Cornwall.  Currently the society has nearly 500 members and organises activities covering all aspects of the discipline. WALKS Every month there is an archaeological walk somewhere in Cornwall led by one of our members or an invited expert. TALKS During winter months talks are given at centres in Truro and Liskeard by speakers, national and local (and including members) who are specialists in their field of interest. ACTIVITIES The Society gives opportunities for those interested in practical archaeology to participate in fieldwork and learn archaeological techniques. Members often take part in excavations run by the Cornwall County Council's Historic Environment Service (HES). The Society and the HES work in partnership and members' contribution to the work of the HES is greatly appreciated. COMMUNICATIONS The Society produces three Newsletters a year, which report on recent activities in Cornwall and give a diary of events. They are also a platform for member's comments, requests and discussion points. The Society's annual journal is considered one of the best archaeological publications by a local society in the country. This reports on many of the archaeological happenings in Cornwall by members and others. ORGANISATION AND MANAGEMENT Annual General Meeting The Society holds its Annual General Meeting in March/April when members of the General Committee are elected. The Committee meets four times a year to enact the regular business of the Society. From time to time a Projects Committee is established to oversee significant activities. The Publications Committee meets as required to oversee all publications. For closer contact each historical hundred in Cornwall has an Area Representative who reports at twice-yearly meetings on endangered sites and local finds.
