SIAS welcomes new members and promises them an active and varied programme related to the study of industrial archaeology in the County of Somerset. Members are invited to take a full part in its activities. A programme of organised excursions, casual "fossicks", formal talks by visiting lecturers and informal members' evenings is advertised in the Bulletin which is issued free of charge to all members three times a year, and on the Programme page of this web site. The Bulletin also carries detailed and informative articles on the industrial history of the county. The Society has published a number of monographs called Surveys dealing with various industrial archaeological subjects in the County. All publications and other items of interest are available for purchase at meetings.
