The Group was established to encourage interest in and research into the archaeology of the Romano-British period in Surrey.
It has established itself rapidly with a programme during the winter months of lectures by prominent experts on the period, as well as occasional half-day seminars and a biennial day conference. Evening lectures are normally held in Dorking, whilst recent and planned conferences are held in Chertsey. During the spring and summer months the Group runs a very active programme of research including
both large and small excavations, geophysical surveys and field walking. A particularly enjoyable feature of the Group's programme is the well established series of visits to Romano-British sites and places of special interest throughout southern England and further afield.
