Sussex Archaeological Society began in 1846 and is the oldest Archaeological Society in England.
We are a registered charity whose charitable aims are to enable people to enjoy, learn about and have access to the heritage of Sussex. We do this by opening six historic sites in Sussex to visitors old and young, providing research facilities in our library, running excavations, providing a finds identification service and offering a variety of walks, talks and conferences on the archaeology and history of Sussex.
We rely upon income from admissions, donations, grants and membership to enable us to look after the buildings and sites in our care. We do not receive any any government funding. You can find out about and help preserve your local heritage by becoming a member, making a donation, becoming a volunteer or visiting our sites.
