The Oxford University Archaeological Society (OUAS) is a cross-collegial student-run society for those fascinated by the past and ways of uncovering it. Although the bulk of our membership comes from the university, we also have many members from the Oxfordshire region and beyond.

OUAS runs to provide those with an interest in archaeology a platform to share and learn about the subject. The society’s three main activities are speaker events, social events, and excavations and excursions.

Throughout its existence, the OUAS has sought to provide a forum for discussing and learning about the past whilst meeting those with similar archaeological interests, as well as giving amateurs and trainees alike with the opportunity to partake in archaeological digs. Currently, OUAS is hoping to bring more excursions and excavation opportunities into its termly schedule to complement the great speaker events and social meetings it runs. The society is a strictly non-profit organisation, with committee members donating their time and energy to help others appreciate the wonders of exploring the past.
