The Yorkshire Archaeological Society

The Yorkshire Archaeological Society has promoted the study of Yorkshire’s past since 1863, when it was created as the Huddersfield Archaeological and Topographical Association.

On this site you'll find details of the society's historical and archaeological activities across Yorkshire - lectures, excursions, publications, projects - and links to its vibrant special interest sections.

YAS's fine library and archival collections are in the process of being re-housed in the Brotherton library, University of Leeds, where they will be accessible from 2016. 

We welcome new members to the society and its sections - please follow the 'membership' link.
