The SPMA was founded in 1966 with the aim of promoting the archaeology of late medieval to industrial society in Britain, Europe and those countries influenced by European colonialism. The Society now covers the archaeology of the period up to the present day. To achieve this aim the Society publishes the triannual journal ‘Post-Medieval Archaeology’, and a twice yearly newsletter, as well as regular monographs, and holds conferences and meetings.
