About Appleby Archaeology


Appleby Archaeology is focused on practical, field archaeology. Most of the Group's activities take place in the Appleby area but our interests range across the whole of Cumbria. Members receive four Newsletters a year and are entitled to attend the winter lecture programme free of charge.

Winter Lecture Programme and Summer Events

Winter lectures normally take place monthly between October and April each year in the Supper Room of Appleby's Market Hall. Summer events take the form of evening walks and weekend excursions into the Eden Valley area and beyond. Please click the Programme tab for details.

Training and Research

We are currently offering instruction in surveying and excavation techniques in association with Wardell Armstrong Archaeology through our ongoing research and project work.


In the past we have organised a biennial Summer Conference and, wherever possible, have published Proceedings. Currently we are concentrating our efforts on Research activities.
