Welcome to the web site of
Essex Archaeological and Historical Congress

The umbrella group for archaeology, local history and family history organisations throughout the geographical county of Essex.


The 2016 Spring Meeting will be held on Saturday 5th March, at 2:30 p.m., at Chelmsford Museum.

We are currently preparing the next Congress news-letter: if you have any news, articles or any information about the activities of your organisation that you would like included, please email them as soon as possible to the Secretary, Mr N Jacobs.

The Marconi Heritage Group are in the process of establishing a heritage centre in Chelmsford for the company, which, of course, was the originator of practically all modern methods of communication, and whose early wireless equipment is very relevant to the current commemorations of the First World War. In later years as it had over 70 locations in Essex it became one of the largest employers in the county. For further details click above to visit their website.

The Friends of Historic Essex are running a project, in association with the Essex Record Office, to mark the outbreak of the Great War. Running until 2018 the project aims to raise funds to provide archival resources for educational study, family history research and community histories.
