The Prehistoric Society

Alex Gibson

Welcome to the website for the Prehistoric Society

Congratulations to retiring president Alison Sheridan and Niall Sharples for organising an excellent Europa weekend in Cardiff and congratulations to the recipient of the Europa Prize, Prof Alasdair Whittle.

The 2014-15 programme will be advertised in Past but keep an eye on these pages to see what is coming up and don’t forget to book early to avoid disappointment.
New this year are a series of ‘Grand Days Out’ across the country. 

Again, keep checking the website.

I am delighted to announce that CUP have completed their scanning of back issues of PPS and now the entire run of PPS and PPSEA is available online, for free to Members, on the Cambridge Journals Online website: The PPSEA volumes can be found on their own page:
