Industrial Archaeology Review

Founded by the AIA in 1976, Industrial Archaeology Review has long been the leading journal in its subject.

Its focal point and the common theme of its contents is the surviving evidence of industrial activity. Emphasis is placed on the practical aspects of a subject in which fieldwork plays an essential part, including recording, surveying, excavation, interpretation, conservation and protective legislation.

It is a peer-reviewed academic journal, with scholarly standards of presentation, yet seeks to encourage submissions from both amateurs and professionals which will inform all those working in the field of current developments.

While deriving much of its material from within the British Isles, the journal aims to be international in its coverage of the subject, presenting material of relevance to those concerned with industrial archaeology throughout the world.

Industrial Archaeology Review is provided to all paid-up members of the AIA.

The entire run has now been digitised and is accessible on-line at:  T & F online.
Members of AIA have free access to this. A search facility is available also.
