The present group has been in existence since January 2015. Each year we choose a theme and members contribute with presentations based on their reading around the subject or research into it.

Our chosen themes in 2018-9 were ‘The Romans in Perthshire’ and ‘The early railways of Perthshire’. In 2019-20 we have studied the medieval period in Perth, Perthshire and further afield. Group members have worked on aspects of this theme, and have then made presentations, normally using powerpoint. At each meeting we have a slot entitled “Archaeology in the news” which reviews media coverage of topics relating to archaeology and history.

For a number of years we have arranged Summer trips to places of interest.
