ACTIVITIES OF THE SOCIETY
Throughout most of the year the Isle of Thanet Archaeological Society
holds informal Monday evening meetings at our headquarters behind
Crampton Tower in Broadstairs High Street. Members, and others perhaps
interested in joining, are welcome to drop in to discuss our current
projects, research local history, examine recent finds, borrow a book
from the library or just chat about what is happening in Thanet
A local professional
archaeologist is usually available to advise at these evening meetings,
and at other times gives members informal training in relevant skills
that will be useful in carrying out archaeological projects in Thanet.

The Society organises regular lecture evenings, held either in the hall
adjacent to our Society rooms, or at the Broadstairs campus of
Canterbury Christ Church University, and visits to interesting
archaeological sites are arranged for members and guests.
Pot-washing at the Trust
We help the Trust with post-excavation work, for example pot-washing,
and sometimes assist on their local digs. Fundraising and social events
also take place regularly.
