Rutland Local History & Record Society

Publications

The Society's publications consist of, first, the annual Rutland Record (free to paid-up members for the appropriate year), secondly a series of Occasional Publications, and thirdly several more substantial research reports, the Rutland Record Series. Over the years, these publications have made very significant contributions to our knowledge of the history and archaeology of the county. Many of the earlier titles are now out of print, but most of these may be consulted on the Society's website, www.rutlandhistory.org, free of charge. Please see individual pages for details.
