Chichester & District Archaeology Society (CDAS)

From Prehistoric, Bronze Age, Iron Age, Roman and Mediaeval periods through to the 21st Century, Chichester city and its countryside provide a rich variety of archaeology for the members of the Chichester and District Archaeology Society.


NEXT TALK: 25th May: Members evening: Hear about some of the work the Society and individual members have been doing to explore the archaeology of the Chichester area.

Regrettably there will be no live stream of this month’s talk. We will however try an alternative option of recording the talk and making that available via our YouTube channel (though note; this will be a recording of the digital presentation only, it will not feature a camera view of the guest speaker, and will be available to members only).

PLACE: New Park Centre, New Park Rd, Chichester PO19 7XY TIME: 7:30pm

CDAS is making making certain videos available to everyone via our new public YouTube channel here. In addition, members have the opportunity to see presentations on our members-only channel designed to supplement our monthly talks. Details of the latter channel have been circulated and are available on request.

Our latest public presentation can be viewed below.
