Welcome to Leicestershire Archaeological and Historical Society

We promote the study of Leicestershire’s history, archaeology, antiquities and architecture

The Society was founded in 1855 and over the years has changed its name slightly, but its aims have virtually remained the same; ‘to promote the study of history, archaeology, antiquities and architecture of the counties of Leicestershire and Rutland’.
