The Henley-on-Thames Archaeological & Historical Group, formed in 1976, provides a forum for archaeologists, historians, and others with similar local interests. The Group has been active in archaeological excavations and in studying the history of Henley, its surrounding districts and their inhabitants.

We publish research in our Journals, arrange monthly lectures from October to June, and arrange visits to archaeological digs and other places of historic interest.
