| New Series Volume 3 | 2014
Published May 2015
The latest edition of FORUM will be sent to all CBA Yorkshire members and affiliates during May-June 2015.
This volume offers with a fantastic range of topics, projects, methodologies and period coverage. The immense scope and coverage of archaeological activities in Yorkshire are themselves reflected in the variety of practitioners — volunteers, community groups, professional and commercial organisations, researchers, students and academics. FORUM’s pictorial cover design offers a snapshot of some projects that represent the broad inclusivity of the many engagements — in terms of participants’ age and diversity of background.
See below for Volume 3 contents.
Details about back-copies can be found to the right.

Contents | Foundation Series | 2000-2009        A4, b&w illustrations (2007 is A5)

Each issue contains summaries of archaeological work undertaken in Yorkshire during the year and longer articles.

Please note: Until 2002 the Forum numbering system meant that the year given on the cover referred to the year covered by the reports. Forum was published early in the following year. So for instance Forum 2001 covered work carried out in 2001 but was published in 2002. From 2003 the numbering system was changed to reflect the publication year. This means that there is no Forum 2002 in the sequence.
