The Society's principal publications are the Journal and the Bibliography. The Journal, usually published each December, is one of the UK’s leading publications in the field. Medieval castles of the British Isles have always been one of the particular strengths of the journal, but there are no geographical limits to its range, which continues to expand. Selected pdf articles from the Journal issues from two or more years ago are freely available for consultation on-line and download here. All subscribing members receive the journal as part of the membership package.
