Welcome


In common with everyone else, the activities of Marlow Archaeology have been seriously disrupted by the Covid 19 pandemic. However, we are getting our talks programme back on track, although they will be Zoom based, at least until the end of the year. The capacity restrictions on the use of Liston Hall make our customary meetings impractical. Details of coming talks are on this website. We are asking people to register because we are limited to 100 attendees in total: we have not had that many to one of our talks for many years, but we live in hopes! We shall ask you to indicate whether you are a member or not, in order to ensure that members get priority if necessary. Talks will be free until the end of the year, but thereafter, if we continue to use Zoom, there will be a nominal admission charge to cover speaker fees.

Marlow Archaeology excavationFieldwork activities are suspended until guidance on suitable working arrangements is available. Any news will be posted as circumstances change.

Marlow Archaeological Society - better known as Marlow Archaeology, or MAS - is an active local society dedicated to widening knowledge of the archaeology and history of Marlow and the surrounding area - and sharing it with the wider community.

Our monthly talks programme in Marlow has become increasingly popular. It covers various historical and archaeological subjects that are mostly presented by leading experts in their field. We run regular fieldwork projects involving excavations, geophysics, research and reports. Visits are organised to places of interest.

We work with other local organisations to encourage public interest in supporting and conserving the archaeological and historical heritage of the Marlow area. We are involved in many local events, such as fêtes and regattas, which provide an opportunity to communicate with visitors to our stand and display our activities and findings.

Many of our members are also involved in projects around the country and we use their experience gained to improve our society.

New members are always welcome – some are interested in archaeology while others may just enjoy attending our talks and events. No previous archaeological experience is necessary as training and guidance are always on offer.
