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.
At the 2016 Congress A.G.M. held on Saturday 25th June, the ongoing dificulties related to the running
of Congress, and options for its future, were discussed.
It was the unanimous decision of the meeting that Congress should be dissolved, and that its key
functions, including the staging of Symposia, the publication of the Panel of Speakers, and the
co-ordination of the various local societies falling within the remit of Congress, will pass to ESAH
(Essex Society for Archaeology and History).
Please note that with effect from Tuesday, 20th September, the Essex Archaeological and Historical
Congress ("Essex Congress") was removed from the Central Register of Charities and ceased to exist as
a body corporate.
For any enquiries please contact ESAH.
