An interest in the past ?

Do you realise how archaeologically exciting
South Africa is ?

The variety of sites is awesome:  from the Cradle of Humankind and fossils of the earliest humans, through the 2 million-year history of the Stone Age and the Khoi-San peoples, to the greatest storehouse of high quality rock paintings and engravings in the world; through the 2000-year history of agriculture, mining and settlement by Iron Age immigrants from west and central Africa to South Africa's rich colonial history.

The Trans-Vaal branch of the South African Archaeological Society aims to encourage and satisfy your interest in all aspects of archaeology and its related disciplines by bringing members of the public, amateurs and professionals together.


Join The South African Archaeological Society to learn about Southern Africa's rich archaeological heritage and to explore cultures and ancient civilisations from around the world.



We organise:

  • Monthly lectures by respected scholars and specialists, both local and international,
  • Regular day or weekend guided excursions to a wide range of interesting sites
  • An Annual Seminar - a symposium of lectures on a theme
  • Local and Overseas tours
  • A regular publication summarising all lectures and activities.

The Trans-Vaal Branch is based in Gauteng and its lectures are held at Roedean School, 35 Princess of Wales Terrace, Parktown, Johannesburg
Contact us at secretary@archaeology.org.za or at 072 349 6507


If your interest lies in learning about and preserving the past, this is the society for you.
