Publications from the County Museum

The Buckinghamshire County Museum in Church Street is at the historic heart of Aylesbury, the county town. The society's collection, begun by our members in the 1850s, became the foundation of the museum - first run by the society itself, then from 1957 by the County Council and today by the Bucks County Museum Trust. The museum has always produced occasional publications, which can be viewed on its own website. Two past publications are available from the society:


Buckinghamshire in the Civil War
This overview of the role of the county and its people in the English Civil War of the 1640s was produced alongside an exhibition, for which it acted in part as a catalogue. Professor Ian Beckett summarises events in Buckinghamshire during the war, with a map and timeline. This is followed by a detailed description of 87 objects which bring solid reality to the story of a county in wartime.
62-page large-format paperback, with 46 colour illustrations and 10 black-and-white, published in 2004.
£6.00 plus £2.00 post and packing.
