TAS Bulletin journal available online | Members’ access

Dear TAS Members and Friends,

TAS_Bulletin_18_2013The Bulletin is our annual journal, provided free to members since 1996 (number 1). It covers all the latest fieldwork activity in the Tees Valley and catchment areas. Previous issues have featured reports on Street House Farm Anglo-Saxon cemetery, Dalton-on-Tees Roman villa and Foxrush Farm Iron Age settlement.

A limited supply of printed back copies is available for purchase. Electronic (PDF) versions of the most recent editions, many with colour images, are gradually being made available for current subscribed members – reformatting of copies back to 2006 (number 11) is in progress.
