SWAAG (The Swaledale and Arkengarthdale Archaeology Group) is a group of enthusiasts in the northernmost Yorkshire dales who contribute to the knowledge base of the history of our dales through archaeological and related activity.
SWAAG began work in July 2009 under the guidance and supervision of Tim Laurie FSA, a leading expert on prehistoric landscapes in the area.
SWAAG welcomes new members. Most of our walks and 
activities are open to all, so please come along to see if you would like to join us. Our programme includes regular ‘informed walks’, talks and visits on a broad range of subjects of interest to the group, opportunities to take part in landscape and geophysical surveys, and participation in archaeological digs.


We have over time studied a wide range of sites from prehistoric through Romano-British to medieval and lead mining.


Please explore the website for our archaeological reports, publications, photographs and records of wonderful trees and fungi, and general Historic Environment Records.


We meet on the evening of the second Tuesday of the month. Currently this is at Fremington Sunday School Hall from April to October, and via Zoom during the winter.
