Canterbury Historical and Archaelogical Society (CHAS)

Canterbury Archaeological Society was established in 1920 'to encourage the study of the history and antiquities of the City of Canterbury and surroundings and to preserve the architectural features and characteristics of the City.' Currently, its principal activities are to arrange a series of winter lectures by invited speakers on historical and archaeological subjects, and to organise summer excursions to places of historical interest. Non-members may attend the lectures on payment of a small fee. The programme for the lectures is published in the autumn. The Society seeks to raise and maintain interest in the City's architectural heritage.
