About GlosArch

GlosArch (Gloucestershire Archaeology) was formed in Gloucester in 1967 as the Gloucester and District Archaeological Research Group (GADARG). We are an amateur archaeological society and have some 160 members who are interested in the archaeology and history of Gloucestershire. We are a registered charity (Charity No. 1201251). Our members are encouraged to develop their knowledge and skills in archaeology and local history through our annual lecture series and site visits, participative fieldwork activities and research and annual journal Glevensis.

We maintain close links with the archaeologists of Gloucester City Council and Gloucestershire County Council, Gloucestershire Archives, Bristol & Gloucestershire Archaeological Society (BGAS) and the Gloucestershire Local History Association .

We are members of the BGAS Committee for Archaeology that represents the local archaeological community on matters of concern and organises an annual symposium.
