The Clevedon and District Archaeological Society was founded in the 1920s with the aim of promoting local amateur archaeological interest and learning. It provides a Winter Programme of evening talks, a Spring Archaeology Course (subject to demand), a five-day Summer Study Tour, arranges various day trips to places of interest and disseminates information received from other local and regional archaeological groups.

The Society is affilited to the Council of British Archaeology (CBA), CBA South West Region, Avon Local History Association (AHLA), Somerset Archaeological and Natural History Society (SAHNS) and the British Association of Local History (BALH). The CLEAT (Clevedon & Environs Archaeology Team) engages in field archaeological projects in the local area.

Our Logo is the torque terminal found in Clevedon sometime before 1897 and which is now in the British Museum.
