The Society holds a number of meetings throughout the year. The Annual General Meeting is usually held in different part of the UK in May or June each year. Visits and fieldtrips form a part of many of our events and these cover a range of different activities from visiting mines, to the remains of furnaces or workshops, visiting working mills, seeing live metallurgy experiments or even going behind the scenes of museums or exhibitions. In the autumn the Research in Progress meeting provides a forum for the presentation of current, usually unpublished research. At these meeting there is an award for the best student presentation by a current or recent student (within 12 months of graduating).

HMS also manages a list of events that might be of interest to our members.
