Why join us?
The subscriptions paid by our members enable us to continue our research and conservation work. Membership also provides benefits:
Transactions: each year members receive a copy of the Society's journal, which publishes articles on current research into the
history and archaeology of Gloucestershire by leading experts.
Newsletter: members receive regular well-illustrated newsletters by post or e-mail, keeping them in touch with the activities of the Society and related organizations. The newsletter also includes short articles based on ongoing research.
Excursions: regular excursions are arranged to places of local historical and archaeological interest, where members enjoy the insights of expert guides. Longer residential excursions within the UK and overseas are also arranged.
Lectures: Two series of lectures are arranged between September and March each year. One series is held in Bristol and the other in Gloucester.
Library: Members have access to the Society's extensive library of books and periodicals on archaeology, architecture, history, geography and local studies.
Publications: Record Series members also receive a copy of Record Series and Essay volumes as they are published.
