Glasgow Archaeological Society hosts and organises a monthly lecture programme, which usually runs from October to April every year. The lectures are held at the University of Glasgow in The Boyd Orr Building, University Avenue, and are usually open to members and non-members alike.

The Society organises a number of excursions each year for members and non-members alike. During the winter months the Society generally organises two local excursions, whilst in the summer the milder weather allows for two or three visits to more distant places of archaeological and historical interest. Some of our visits are to excavations in progress, or places which have been featured in one of our Society lectures.

The cost of these excursions vary, depending on admission costs and whether or not transport needs to be arranged. If you are interested in joining us on any of our excursions, please contact our Excursions Convener via the contacts page. It is essential to book your place in advance.

Here you'll find listings for other events, excavations, excursions, or surveys that may be of interest to GAS members. The events listed here have not been organised by Glasgow Archaeological Society, so please refer to the contact details given in the individual listings for more information. 

The Society has organised a number of events to mark special occasions in the Society's history, and our sesquicentennial – 150 years of Glasgow Archaeological Society – in 2006-2007 was no exception. Our celebrations included a Civic Reception held in Glasgow City Chambers, and the reopening of an excavation in Pollok Park. In 2008 we also celebrated the centennary of excursions to the Antonine Wall.

The Society also enjoys a more social element to many occasions, including occasional walks around the city, which are organised during the summer months, and the Presidential Dinner – held at the end of the president's three year term to celebrate and recognise their contribution to the Society and its membership.
