The Dorchester Association

Founded in 1982, the Dorchester Association for research into local history and archaeology is dedicated to the study and appreciation of local history and archaeology in Dorchester and its surroundings. The town has long fascinated historians with its well preserved Roman remains and there are many other buildings and monuments of interest to explore. 


We normally have a programme of events which you can find on the Events page, but owing to the Coronavirus situation normal meetings are suspended. Last season’s programme is below for information.
