Welcome to the new website of the Canterbury Historical and Archaeological Society (CHAS)

If you are interested in Canterbury, its history, archaeology and buildings, then our organisation may be for you.  Visit over 800 web pages to see stunning architecture, interesting history and find out about colourful characters who left their mark on Canterbury.  We hope you will join us at one of our lectures or one of our excursions to places of interest.  Our lecture programme resumes on September 13th 2023; other activities, together with contact details, are available via the pages shown above.  If you’d like to know more, our Membership Secretary David Sadtler would be pleased to hear from you; please get in touch using the form on the Membership page.  We look forward to seeing you – you’re certain to receive a warm welcome.
