CLASP Winter Newsletter 2023

Good news for those who like to sit down with a glass of beer – or a warm cup of tea – and relax with a good read over Christmas; the CLASP Winter Newsletter for 2023 is available. This latest newsletter includes notes from the 2023 AGM Chairman’s address and a very in-depth view from the CLASP Archaeological Director. Well worth a read!


2023 AGM

Draft minutes for the CLASP 2023 AGM are now available in the members section.

2023 Lecture Series videos available

All the lectures from the 2023 lecture series are available (nore to be added as the series progresses) at the CLASP video site.

CLASP brings local archaeology enthusiasts together to investigate their local past.

Our members, all volunteers, are technically led by our professionally qualified Archaeological Director, himself a volunteer. Members are encouraged and enabled to learn skills for themselves, both formally and ‘in the field’, to become confident and self-sufficient in all aspects of archaeological investigation.

CLASP also provides talks and lectures as part of its commitment to encouraging local communities to ‘own’ their archaeological heritage.

Join us! (It’s only £10 per annum!)
