Architectural Heritage

The Journal of the Architectural Heritage Society of Scotland. Architectural Heritage is a volume of architectural history and conservation articles, essays and other writings, covering all periods of building up to and including the recent past. Contributors are regarded as authoritative in their subject area, with papers by leading Scottish and international architectural historians and conservation professionals.

The journal also includes extensive book reviews, an update on architectural accessions to the National Monuments Record of Scotland and the Scottish Research Register, which covers research on Scottish architecture completed in the previous year by students in Scottish universities.
