A group that has been meeting in Falkirk district for well over 100 years is still going strong today.

The Falkirk Natural History & Archaeological Society was founded circa 1903 and is concerned with the natural history and archaeological heritage of Falkirk and the surrounding area.

It changed its name to Falkirk Archaeological and Natural History Society in 1935 and now has around 30-40 dedicated members who discuss a massive range of subjects.

President Francis Scott said: “We have six meetings a year and they are always well attended.

“We like to have a balanced diet and try to vary the subjects we discuss from historic on month to something with an archaeological theme the meeting after. The excavations before the Tesco store in Camelon, and the Clackmannan Bridge, were built are two subjects we’ve had recently.

“The speakers who come along are usually from the central belt and include university staff and professors.”
