TAS Bulletin E-Publication

Message from TAS

I am delighted to announce that our annual journal TAS BULLETIN is being
made available as a downloadable e-publication. Under Jenny Parker’s
skillful and dedicated editorship since 1996 (issue 1), printed copies
are now in short supply for many issues, or are out of print. We are
packaging the remaining copies into run-sets for sale later this year.

In the meantime, we are able to make PDF e-copies available from our
website* to current subscribing members (passwords required). This is a
gradual process, so please keep checking the website: see below.

* We are looking for a new Editor to help continue Jenny’s
legacy so that we can provide an annual journal, in addition to our
TEESSCAPES eMagazine and social media presence. The BULLETIN journal is
available exclusively to TAS Members.
* If you can help scan in older
copies of BULLETIN or would like to write for any of our publications,
please get in touch: email teesarchsoc.newsd@gmail.com (mailto:
teesarchsoc.newsd@gmail.com?subject=I%20would%20like%20to%20help) or
have a chat at one of our lecture events. Thank you.

* Read the announcement (http://teesarchaeology.us4.list-manage.com/track/click?u=87579a941929db934ca16d02a&id=d2bdf5561c&e=c5b9eec86c

*Our ultimate intention is to make BULLETIN available via the
Archaeology Data Service (ADS) in PDF-A ISO-Archive format. However,
help is needed to scan-in older copies so that our record endures

Why not forward to a friend and help spread the word about TAS!

Kind Regards,
