Archaeologia Aeliana

Archaeologia Aeliana is the Society's journal. Members of the Society receive copies each year as part of their annual subscription. The current year's volume is normally only available to members, but they and non-members may buy copies of earlier volumes if available. Some older volumes have been digitised and are available electronically. You can see details of these in the contents pages for each series.

Forthcoming Archaeologia Aeliana book reviews are now available on this website in advance of publication.

The first volume was published in 1822. It appeared intermittently at first, but for the last hundred years one volume has been published each year. The journal covers all aspects of the history of North-East England, ranging from archaeology (including excavation reports) and buildings to historical and documentary research, and from prehistory to the present. It has always been an important vehicle for the publication of research on Hadrian's Wall and the Romans in North-East England.

The on-line contents pages provide a comprehensive listing of the contents of all volumes of Archaeologia Aeliana. You can also search our database for particular titles and authors. This database is sensitive to alternative spellings of titles. It is also searchable by author's surname, with a number of features to make it easier to find an item where one is not sure of the exact name or spelling.

Eveyone who was a member during 2015 should by now have received their copy of Archaeologia Aeliana vol 44. Individual members (not institutional or exchange members) can now also obtain access online. Follow this link for the log-in page (if not already logged in), and then go to the Members' Section page for the link to the AA pdfs (stored in Dropbox)

In due course, every volume of AA will be similarly available, but finalising this is taking time, so this is by way of an advance 'taster'. Please don't abuse membership by giving non-members access via this link.
