Welcome to the Hawick Archaeological Society
In 2006 Hawick Archaeological Society celebrated its 150th anniversary continuing a long and distinguished history. It has done much to keep alive and foster an interest in the antiquities of the Borders and to preserve and hand down everything that is of great value regarding the customs of the people as well as the history of many of the more notable characters and inhabitants of the town and district.
In recognition of the assistance given to the museum in Wilton Lodge by the Hawick Archaeological Society in staging “The Banner Blue”, a special Common-Riding exhibition to mark the 500th anniversary of the battle of Hornshole , the Curator has invited all society members to a special viewing evening in the museum on Tuesday 1st April at 7.00 p.m. Museum service staff will be on hand to answer any questions and Steven Craig will also give a talk on the restoration and conservation of the painting of the 1846 Common-Riding showing horse racing at the Haugh. Members will also get the opportunity to see the oldest Common-Riding flags which due to their fragile condition are not normally on show.
COFFEE MORNING. This will be held on Saturday 19th April at 10.00 a.m. in the Congregational Church Hall where members can collect Transactions.
