The Society is an independent publisher of research in Scottish history and archaeology
The Society published the first five volumes of its transactions between 1792 and 1890. These are available to read and download through a dedicated archive. Archaeologia Scotica was succeeded by an annual journal, the Proceedings of the Society of Antiquaries of Scotland.
The Society began publishing its annual journal in 1851 under the joint editorship of David Laing and Daniel Wilson. A complete set of back volumes is available through the PSAS platform. Today, PSAS is a peer-reviewed journal dealing with Scotland’s past in its wider context.
SAIR is an Open Access series of peer-reviewed excavation reports and large-scale surveys conducted in Scotland. You can browse, read and download the reports free of charge through the SAIR platform.
The Society publishes scholarly and non-fiction books on Scottish history and archaeology. Our latest titles are available for purchase in our online shop. Out-of-print books are released in Open Access, where possible, and made freely available through our e-books platform as well as Archaeology Data Service.
