Welcome to the website for the Prehistoric Society

Welcome to the Prehistoric Society, the foremost society for the promotion of study into our prehistoric past.  An exciting series of lectures, visits and conferences  can be found on the events pages of this site all of which are open to members and non-members. These events pages are frequently updated so please keep an eye on them.

Stonehenge Tunnel update: whilst we support the principal of improving the landscape and public enjoyment of the World Heritage Site, we are committed to the preservation of the archaeology and are currently carefully assessing the documents which have been released for consultation.
