  • Annual journal - South Midlands Archaeology - with up to date reports on the year's excavations and discoveries. An index of articles in previous volumes of SMA can be found here


  • Annual conference held in each of the four counties in turn - usually held in the spring, the conference has a reputation for outstanding lectures from expert speakers on their recent work and research. There is also a smaller conference held along with our AGM, normally held in the Autumn. Ranging from prehistoric to post-medieval, recent conference themes have included:

Ritual & Religion
Towns & Villages
Wood, Brick, Stone & Tile
