About The Ise Archaeological Research Society

The Society was formed in 1996 when a few people were asked to investigate a site on Whitegates Farm in Rushton. This turned out to be a Roman Bath House. For many years a summer excavation took place which gradually revealed the Bath-house’s secrets. This came to an end in 2007 when the land was placed under Entry Level Stewardship with Natural England.

The site is rich in history but not in “finds”. One “find” was that of an early Romano-British lead font which is on display in the Manor House Museum in Kettering, Northamptonshire. Monthly talks during the winter were started as a way of members keeping in touch outside of the diggingseason.

After the excavation was closed down the number of talks have increased so that now they are monthly from January to June. We have a break for the summer. In September we also have a visit to a place of interest.  In October talks start again.In November we have our AGM plus a talk and a Christmas Buffet and Quiz Night in December . If something else looks interesting an additional visit might be arranged. In 2013, for example, a visit to the Richard 111 exhibition in Leicester was arranged and in 2014 we went to Chester Farm. As and when the opportunity arises there are also field walks and practise excavations. Graveyard Archaeology which is surveying and recording a churchyard  has also taken place regularly.   A twice yearly newsletter is also published.

Membership is £10. Admission for talks is £4 for members and £5 for non-members. It is a friendly group so why not come along.
