The Newsletter is free to members and published quarterly.

Every edition includes articles about recent research, museum news, book reviews as well as the forthcoming programme and reports of meetings. There is also a ‘help wanted and given’ page which poses some interesting questions!

Members are welcome to write articles for the publication and the Newsletter Editors are very encouraging and helpful to those who are going in to print for the first time.
