Transactions, 1872-2022


Transactions since 1872

In February 1872, Charles Rogers, founder of the Society, wrote of its intention to collect and publish the first papers, or transactions, presented to Fellows covering the years 1869-71. The first volume of Transactions appeared in 1872 with the purpose of recovering ‘from recondite sources … materials which might illustrate the less explored paths of national and provincial history.’

150 years on, Transactions continues to publish a combination of lectures given to the Society, and written up as articles, alongside research articles, commentaries, provocations and round tables submitted by historians worldwide.

Now published by Cambridge University Press, the collection of Transactions from 1872 is available on Cambridge Journals Online. The back list is also available on JSTOR with a five year moving wall.
