Our annual journal Social History in Museums contains a mix of papers on current research, new projects, reviews of exhibitions and new writing in social history.
An archive of past journals is now available.
Please note: the journals have been scanned and are available as pdf documents here. Some are large documents and so may take a short time to download.
You can also download an index of authors and articles here.
