The first volume of the Society’s “Transactions” appeared in 1877 and since that time has been the chief means whereby important and scholarly papers on the history and archaeology of Shropshire have been published. Articles include reports on archaeological excavations and other fieldwork in Shropshire, historical studies, and book reviews.
Members receive a copy of the Transactions free on publication (new members receive the latest volume). The Society is currently in the process of digitising past volumes of its Transactions with the aim of making these available online – please follow this link to see a selection of our past Transaction volumes: Past Transactions volumes
