Priories Historical Society was formed in June 2000 with the intention of bringing a wide variety of talks to the public. We are predominantly interested in the history and archaeology of the local area which covers Nottinghamshire and South Yorkshire although we do have talks on interesting topics from further afield such as Sutton Hoo, the Staffordshire Hoard and Native Americans. The group initially did some metal detecting work but as land was hard to come by decided to concentrate on history talks and visits such as Carlton-in-Lindrick Church and the Leeds Armouries
The aim of the society is to promote an interest in History, Archaeology and Metal Detecting primarily within the South Yorkshire and North Nottinghamshire Geographical Areas.
Membership of the Society shall be open to any resident over the age of 18 years of South Yorkshire and North Nottinghamshire interested in helping the Group to achieve its aims, willing to abide by the rules of the Group and willing to pay the annual membership subscription agreed by the Management Committee at the Annual General Meeting.
