About Us

The Flinders Archaeology and History Society (ArcHSoc) is a not-for-profit organisation dedicated to enhancing the experience of Flinders’ archaeology and history students and to broadening the understanding of archaeology and heritage among the student body. As we know, to succeed in archaeology you need to be proficient in volunteering, networking and teamwork. ArcHSoc strives to facilitate the development of these skills through a range of social networking and professional development events. We have pub crawls, pub nights, monthly BBQs, an annual quiz night, training days, community days, seminars and subsidised volunteer opportunities. Being part of ArcHSoc will benefit you and make your time at university much more pleasant and rewarding.
