HADAS has been one of the most active local societies within the Greater London area. Major excavations have included the West Heath Mesolithic camp site at Hampstead; the Roman site of Sulloniacis at Brockley Hill, a centre of pottery production, to which we have returned as recently as 1999; Roman Hendon as well as medieval Chipping Barnet, where many sites around the High Street have been investigated.
With a membership from Kent to the Orkneys (not to mention the hidden depths of Hendon!) HADAS is a strong and active local society dedicated to investigating our archaeological heritage.
The objects of HADAS are the advancement of archaeological and historical research and education for the public benefit, with particular reference to the archaeology and history of the London Borough of Barnet.
Benefits of membership include: programme of lectures and outings, a monthly Newsletter, use of our extensive library, opportunities for fieldwork
