Abertay Historical Society

About this Organisation

The Abertay Historical Society was founded in 1947 to encourage the study of local history in Dundee, Angus, Perthshire and North Fife.

It hosts a monthly evening lecture series as well as taking part in the Dundee Afternoon Lectures series.

The society also publishes at least one book each year on a local historical topic.

It occasionally lobbies for the preservation of local heritage and was instrumental in the creation of Dundee Heritage Trust and Dundee Civic Trust.

To encourage new research, the society also offers a prize annually to the Universities of Dundee and St Andrews for the student dissertation which makes the greatest contribution to local history.
