Bulletins of Industrial Archaeology Society for the North East

The 16 Bulletins of Industrial Archaeology Society for the North East date from 1966 to 1972

They offer a fascinating insight into the early days of Industrial Archaeology in our area with some of those involved founding the Beamish museum.
Many issues were edited by Keith Chapman, father of CMHS founder Simon, who kindly loaned me them to digitize.
