Local History and Genealogy Division

A wealth of archaeological information on early English cultures, including Celtic and Roman Britain, is available in the collection of British county archaeological and historical journals administered by the Local History and Genealogy Division.1 Entries for the more significant articles in these journals appear in the Public Catalog. Among these titles are Archaeologia (1773-) published by the Society of Antiquaries of London, and Archaeological Journal (1844-) of the Royal Archaeological Institute of Great Britain and Ireland. The initial volume of each county history in the "Victoria County Histories" contains archaeological information. Some of the town and county histories of the United States include archaeological information.
