The Society's Transactions are published each spring and distributed free to members. Each volume comprises reports of archaeological excavations, articles of original historical research, book reviews and reports of the Society's activities during the year. Each volume is fully indexed and a cumulative index is published every 10 years. The abstracts for each volume are made available on the website on publication. The full text of articles are made available on a rolling basis.


The Gloucestershire Record Series publishes annual volumes of records relating to the county. The Society also publishes occasional Essay Volumes on particular themes and the Bristol and Gloucestershire Monographs, based on original research into aspects of the history of Bristol and/or Gloucestershire.


Our online publications include digital surrogates of out of print books, unpublished reports and born digital publications. We shall be expanding our range of online publications in the future.


The Society publishes book reviews in the Transactions and in our newsletter. In future these will be published online as soon as they are available.

PLEASE NOTE - we are unable to supply copies of our books direct to the public, while the Covid-19 precautions are in place.
