The South Somerset Archaeological Research Group is a voluntary organisation which evolved out of an amalgamation of the South Cadbury Environs Project and the South East Somerset Archaeological Society.
The Group's aim is to support heritage and archaeological activities related to the archaeology in and around South Somerset. Members have the opportunity to take part in practical archaeological and local history research projects, as well as attend talks, outings and other events. Members also receive a monthly newsletter sent out by email.
For information about membership and how to join see the Contact Us page or email firstname.lastname@example.org
