Regia Anglorum Conferences

Since 2012, the Society has held several conferences where academics and experts from both without and within the Society talk to members in detail about the era.

Over the years, we have been privileged to have some world renowned experts in our period come and talk to us and been party to seldom heard stories. In 2016, Andy Nicholson, the Local Government Archaeological Officer for Dumfries and Galloway, recalled being the only archaeologist on site when the nationally-significant Galloway Hoard was excavated. in 2019, Dr Cat Jarman's non-disclosure agreement ended a week before the conference, meaning we were the first outsiders to hear some of the more fascinating details of the Repton investigations.
