2020 Worcestershire Archaeological Society research collections


We house the library of the Worcestershire Archaeological Society (WAS). It contains rare books, research materials and newsletters about the history and archaeology of the county.

Founded in 1854, WAS promotes the study of archaeology and local history. The Society publishes Transactions, the archaeological journal of record for Worcestershire, as well as reports on archaeological fieldwork and the study of historic buildings. The WAS website contains details of how to access the library.
