The Society has published a series of monographs for more than 50 years. It covers a full range of topics and site types including cemeteries and burials, rural settlement, towns, industry, religious and monastic sites, manors and moats together with more synthetic conference volumes on specific themes.

All the publications are fully refereed with the aim of publishing at the highest academic level reports on sites of national and international importance, and of encouraging the widest debate possible through publication of the Society’s conference proceedings. The series’ objectives are to cover the broadest chronological and geographical range and to assemble a series of volumes which reflect the changing intellectual and technical scope of the discipline.
