IAG is based in Ingleton and it has as its core area of operations the Ingleborough massif and surrounding valleys of Kingsdale, Chapel le Dale and Ribblesdale.
Founded in 1996 under the direction of Alan King, one of the most active archaeologists in the Yorkshire Dales, it has been described as one of the most active and successful archaeology groups in the North of England.
The Group exists to further research and understanding of the historic heritage of its core area by archival research and archaeological investigation. It has been involved in a broad range of excavations, ranging from a 19c industrial building within Ribblehead Construction Camps to a Romano-British settlement near Ingleton to a Mesolithic site at Kingsdale Head.
There’s a monthly programme of lecture meetings in winter and outings in summer, which non-members can also attend.
Although the Group members are on the whole keen amateurs and membership is open to all, we aim at a high professional standard in all our practical work.
