The Society actively studies, explores and records the archaeology of the Huddersfield area. It covers Pre-history, the Roman and Mediaeval periods and more recently, Industrial Archaeology. A Roman Interest Group has just been formed, whose priority is to find more links of the Roman Road across the Pennines
A winter lecture series is held on the first Friday of each month from October to March, attracting speakers from the top-rank of professional archaeologists and researchers. The Society also organises excursions and social activities on a regular basis. A Young Archaeologists’ club is planned for 2006/7.
