The Society has organised many events throughout its history, including conferences, and workshops. There are plans for future events including marking the 850th anniversary of the city of Glasgow in 2025. In the past we have also organised fieldwork projects and excavations, notably along the Antonine Wall.
We have also organised a number of events to mark special occasions in the Society’s history, and our sesquicentennial – 150 years of Glasgow Archaeological Society – in 2006-2007 was no exception. Our celebrations included a Civic Reception held in Glasgow City Chambers, and the reopening of an excavation in Pollok Park. In 2008 we also celebrated the centenary of excursions to the Antonine Wall. The Society also enjoys a more social element to many occasions, including the annual Presidential Dinner where all past presidents get together with the current president for a convivial meal on or near the anniversary of the Society’s creation on 6th December.
