"A society for people interested in exploring, researching and preserving the history and archaeology of Great Yarmouth "

The Great Yarmouth Branch of the Norfolk and Norwich Archaeological Society was founded on 24th January 1888 as a charitable organisation for people to meet, discuss and share their interest in heritage, history and archaeology.  In February 1953, members sought independence and became the Great Yarmouth and District Archaeological Society.

 

In May 2009, in order to reflect members' changing interests, the Society's name was changed to the Great Yarmouth Local History and Archaeological Society.
