Why you should join usWiltshire Archaeological & Natural History Society (WANHS), founded in Devizes in 1853, after the acquisition of the John Britton library of topographical and antiquarian books and manuscripts by a group of Wiltshire gentlemen. The inaugural meeting resolved to form a society 'to cultivate and collect information on archaeology and Natural History in their various branches and to form a Library and Museum illustrating the History, natural, civic and ecclesiastic of the County of Wilts'. Most of the original members were clergymen and landed gentry.
The Strategic Plan for 2009-2014 outlines how the Society will deliver its mission of “inspiring people to explore the archaeology, history and environment of Wiltshire”, and ensure the sustainable development of the Society. For full details of the Strategic Plan, please click here.
