Plymouth Archaeology Society (PAS) consists mainly of amateur members with an enthusiastic interest in a wide range of archaeological disciplines. We wish to share our enthusiasm for archaeology in general and provide better knowledge and support for the abundant local sites in our area.

Visitors are invited to attend any of our regular meetings (coach trips require pre-booking) and we hope you will be tempted to become a full member. PAS is open to all to apply for membership (membership information).

P.A.S. organise monthly winter lectures by invited guest speakers (winter programme). The summer programme consists of visits to local sites of interest. These are usually guided by experts with local knowledge of the site concerned (summer programme). The summer programme is augmented by coach trips to sites a little further afield. These are usually day trips but can occasionally involve a weekend away.

We also organise workshops to benefit those with a practical interest in archaeology. In the past these have included - surveying for archaeologists, geophysics and pollen analysis (archaeology workshops).

Any damage or threats to archaeological sites should be reported urgently to either The City Archaeologist based in the Planning Dept (01752 305433) or the City Museum (01752 304774). Archaeological finds should be reported to the City Museum.

Sutton Harbour

Martin Read

Martin will lead us on a walk around the north and east of Sutton Harbour to review the reclamation of the area from the medieval period onwards. The majority of the excavations around Sutton Harbour have taken place in this area, including the Sugarhouse. We will take a look at the sites and outline recent research into the original extent of Sutton Pool.

Meet at SX48270 54284, junction of Vauxhall St with Vauxhal Quay outside the Dive shop. What3Words: talked. means. called
