 Welcome to the Wigan Archaeological Society

Our small but well-established group was formed in 1982.

We meet once a month in Wigan for lectures and discussions on topics of historical or archaeological interest. We have trips in the summer and carry out fieldwork during the year (including excavations).

The aims of the society are:

  1. To expand the knowledge and awareness of our local, national and international heritage.
  2. Increase our understanding of the historical significance of the area.
  3. Provide a base for research and a resource for field projects within the area.

Over the years our society has carried out a number of field projects within the Wigan district. Reports of these projects are available on-line through the projects area of our web site, and our current activities are recorded in our Project Blog.
