Lorn Archaeological and Historical Society was formed in 1963 by local heritage enthusiasts and has continued for 60 years to bring together those in the Oban and Lorn area who want to learn more, with interesting winter lectures, summer visits, workshops and, in the past, some serious archaeological activities.
After a hiatus 2020 to late 2022 the society is now thriving again, with all new young committee. 

Winter Lectures 2024   :   Summer 2024 

We had a great year celebrating our 60th anniversary throughout 2023 with a party, field archaeological workshops, lovely entry in the St Conans Kirk Christmas tree festival as well as highly interested and informative lectures through the winter.

Join us in 2024 for a wide variety of talks, walks, events and activities exploring and learning more about our local heritage together. You are very welcome to join our mailing list only, some activities will be members only.

We are VERY pleased to finally bring the incredible resource of the archive of published journals and newsletters to the online audience. And the 2022-23 lectures are being added to youtube now. There are still plenty of printed journals available for a donation. 

Follow all the links to find out what we are doing, planning and to enjoy the past heritage of LAHS.

We NEED more volunteers to help us – PLEASE offer your time and expertise, behind the scenes is fine.

And you are very welcome to donate too, there are plenty future opportunities if we have the funding.
