Epsom & Ewell History

& Archaeology Society


Welcome to the EEHAS website


Epsom & Ewell History & Archaeology Society  is the local history, archaeology and conservation society for the Epsom and Ewell area of Surrey. It was founded in 1960 by people who had recently taken part in a major excavation of Henry VIII's Nonsuch Palace in Ewell.  Its aims are to encourage interest in the archaeology and history of the area and to ensure that local buildings and objects of historical significance are preserved.


By joining us you will learn more about the history  of our area and have the satisfaction of contributing towards its protection.
