The TAS bookstall has been a popular feature of society lectures and other events for several years now. This is a place where members (and guests!) can rummage through a constantly changing treasure trove of books, pamphlets and magazines on a wide range of archaeological and related subjects. A proportion of the books on display are usually influenced by the topic of the evening’s lecture however there is always a wide selection of archaeology, history and local interest publications as well as current and back issues of the TAS Bulletin. The bookstall is open for business at the end of each lecture so why not peruse the selection and pick up a bargain?
The bookstall is an important source of income for the TAS. This year the stall has been managed by Committee Member Guy Foster and under his stewardship has been going from strength to strength (not least thanks to a large donation of Roman Archaeology books by Spencer Carter). The success of the bookstall, however, relies on donations to keep the stock count high and the selection fresh. Why not donate a few books or magazines yourself? Just bring them along to the next lecture and hand them over to Guy, or any other committee member, and help us keep the bookstall a thriving and valuable feature of the TAS lectures.
