One of our strengths is our membership which we actively encourage to be evenly split between male and female. [Our present membership list is now CLOSED. For more details, click here ]. We work very closely with C.L.A.S.P. and the Northamptonshire representative of the Portable Antiquity Scheme, recording all our finds with Eleanor Cox, who is our Finds Liaison Officer.
In the short time of our existence we have worked on the C.L.A.S.P. archaeological digs at Nether Heyford and Harpole. Recovering many important items along the way.
We always aim to work very closely with landowners and tenant farmers. We ensure that the Country Code is adhered to, whilst on the farmland. An unique feature of our work is the ability to use modern technology to record the findspots and take onsite photographs of the recovered artefacts. The photographs and report are then sent to landowners for their records.
We have exhibited our finds at the Preston Capes fete, delivered 124 presentations to local community groups, held 15 club rallies, and assisted 10 local village history groups in their search for a medieaval fayre site, and a roman villa. Visit the Reports section and read about our work.
We support ‘come and try it’ sessions with other local history groups and Womens Institutes. Our reputation for a patient and quality service goes before us, to the point where we are in demand. This demand results in requests to deliver presentations to interested parties.

In 2012, we delivered 20 presentations to 1129 participants.
In 2013, we delivered 13 presentations to 425 participants.
