Welcome to ArchSoc


The Archaeology Society at the University of Nottingham is a student run organisation for anyone who is studying archaeology or just has an interest in it - anyone studying any subject can become a member.

What we do

We run socials and trips throughout the term, which have included trips to Naples (Pompeii) and Malta, the Humanities Ball and the Underwater Archaeology Social at Ocean. ArchSoc Committee for 2017/18 is working hard to bring even more trips and opportunities to its members. We are adding more trips and socials to our calendar as well as continuing in our annual overseas trip (decided by students). 

Some of the main focuses of the society is to provide students with as many opportunities as possible whether it be volunteering, fieldwork or career opportunities such as talks with National Trust and our British Museum trip. We have a focus on fundraising for charities through different projects such as Aegean textiles and Come Dine with Ancestors. Overall we aim to provide opportunities for our students to get involved and form friendships that will go with them through their time at Nottingham.
