Our small but well-established group meets once a month in Wigan for lectures and discussions on topics of historical or archaeological interest. We have a trip in the summer and carry out fieldwork during the year (including excavations).
The aims of the society are:
- To expand the knowledge and awareness of our local, national and international heritage.
- Increase our understanding of the historical significance of the area.
- Provide a base for research and a resource for field projects within the area.
