The Hunter Archaeological Society

The Hunter Archaeological Society

The Hunter Archaeological Society was founded in 1912 to study and report on the archaeology, history and architecture of South Yorkshire and North Derbyshire in recognition of the work of Joseph Hunter in researching and recording the history of the region. The Society holds a winter programme of talks and summer visits to excavations and sites of interest, as well as publishing papers in its Transactions. It also plays a role in sharing information of archaeological interest and in responding to initiatives and consultations. The Hunter Collections of books, maps and other papers are held both in the Central Library and Sheffield Archives.
