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.
We enjoyed a superb Europa Conference weekend in Edinburgh celebrating the Iron Age research of Professor Peter Wells and we are already planning the 2017 event to honour Professor Helle Vandkilde. This will be held in Southampton and details will appear on the website in due course.
We continue to work on the National Curriculum initiatives and welcome our new Vice-president Dr Roy Loveday to take over the helm on this project from retiring V-P Dr Stuart Needham.
Dr Alex Gibson, President
