BAS Events: UPDATE

Berkshire Archaeological Society Events – March to September 2020

Government advice remains that gatherings are not permitted. We have, therefore, cancelled all BAS events until September but Study Group, Council and Working Group meetings during this time will proceed on Zoom..

For clarity:

Members attending meetings on Zoom will be advised of meeting joining instructions beforehand. Not all Study Group meetings are listed as they are usually confirmed the week before.

Rest assured that during this time Council members will be working on events to be held in late 2020 and in 2021.  

We hope to see you all safe and well in September but are reviewing options if physical meetings are still prohibited or unwise.
