The society was formed this year with Tam Ward as chair, Sandra Kelly secretary, and Jamie Rogers treasurer.

The first excursion was a trip to Kilmartin Museum, which has a large collection of prehistoric artefacts, and on Saturday September 28 there will a trip to look at the Antonine Wall, built by the Romans and running from Old Kilpatrick to Bo’ness.

Tam Ward gave the first talk, on the Prehistoric Archaeology of the Upper Clyde Valley, and on Wednesday October 2 Dr Alison Sheridan of the National Museum of Scotland spoke about the Copper and Early Bronze Age in Western Scotland.
