To keep members informed we produce a newsletter three times a year It includes a brief report of all our meetings. Small items of general interest are included, together with a list of future meetings.  Currently we are producing a printed black and white version but members may opt to have a full colour pdf version sent to them by email suitable for reading with a tablet or computer, also a version for printing out in full colour.


The newsletter editor welcomes suitable items, including news items and requests for information.


Members may also subscribe to a monthly email update, to be sent details of any meeting changes, field meetings arranged at short notice & etc.

NIAS has published a Journal for 45 years recording current research into the industrial history and archaeology of Norfolk. This ensures the work carried out by The Society, its members and others working in the field is properly published as a permanent record and disseminated widely.


The Journal Editor welcomes suitable contributions.


All members receive a copy of the Journal or copies can be bought.


Back copies from about 2000, if in print, may be obtained.  Please ask about availability and price. Email us using the form on the contacts page.   Click on the Index  image to open an index 1970-2008.  Click on Journal image for selected pages preview as examples.


We occasionally produce a special publication, some based on a series of Journal papers, bringing together all we have on one topic into one publication. Others are more general publications concerning our industrial history.


In 2011 the Journal format changed. High quality images are now reproduced, some in colour. This Journal won the AIA prize for Society Journals.
