Aaahs at 50 Exhibition
There is a new exhibition at Abingdon County Hall Musuem, put together by the Abingdon Area Archaeological and Historical Society (AAAHS), who are fifty years old.

They began life as the Abingdon and District Archaeological Society. Volunteers back in 1968 could still take an important part in archaeological digs.

They found many important objects. Some help make up the museum’s collection.

Nowadays, developers are more likely to call in commercial archaeologists.

The society also has many members interested in exploring the history of Abingdon and so have added HISTORY to their name. You can find their growing collection of Abingdon people at https://www.abingdon.gov.uk/partners/history/people and Abingdon buildings at https://www.abingdon.gov.uk/partners/history/buildings.
