Since its foundation in 1870 the Birmingham and Warwickshire Archaeological Society has promoted the preservation, study and enjoyment of archaeology, history and architecture in Birmingham, Warwickshire and neighbouring areas. The Society is relaunching itself with a new business plan focused on community engagement and we are looking for people to help us deliver it.
