|The Hillfort Study Group|
The group meets twice a year. The A.G.M. is held in Oxford in November and is followed by a number of lectures on recent research or fieldwork on hillforts, mostly in Britain, but occasionally on sites from other areas of the world.
A spring field meeting is held usually over a weekend in late April, when the group visits hillforts in a selected locality, guided by an archaeologist with personal knowledge of the local sites. The weekend normally starts with a formal meeting to discuss any group business followed by a talk about the hillforts to be visited by the archaeologist, who will lead the field trips. Since the first field meeting in 1966 at Dorchester, Dorset, the group has visited all parts of the British Isles, as well as other countries of Europe.
