Records of Bucks Records of Buckinghamshire

The Society's annual journal, Records of Buckinghamshire publishes reports of archaeological excavations, historic buildings, local and industrial history, natural history and all aspects of times past in Bucks – see the latest issue for examples.

The journal is published in May every year, when copies go on public sale and every member of the Society receives a free copy. The journal has now been published for more than 150 years and includes a wealth of information on Buckinghamshire's past. There is a searchable index and a subject index on this website.

Indexes are also available in print: Contact the BAS Library for details.


Copies of the journal, including back numbers, can be purchased direct from the society by post. The price to non-members is 15.00, plus 3.50 for post and packing.

TO ORDER the latest issue send a cheque for 18.50, made out to ‘Bucks Archaeological Society’, by post to: Records of Bucks 52, BAS Library, Bucks County Museum, Church Street, Aylesbury, Bucks HP20 2QP.

Offprints of a large number of individual articles are also in print and these too are available for purchase.


Since October 2010 a programme of on-line re-publication aims to make back numbers of Records of Buckinghamshire available both to read on-line and to download in facsimile form. These On-line Records are available on this website.

The most recent addition to our on-line library of articles is Volume 1, which was first published in 1854 and has been unavailable in print for many years. This contains several articles on the local history of Bucks villages – articles which are today of historical interest in themselves. To see the contents list, click here: On-line Records 1.
