The Proceedings of the Prehistoric Society (PPS) bring the latest results of research into prehistory to a worldwide audience. Global in scope and ranging in time from the earliest traces of human activity to the advent of written history, the Proceedings offer an authoritative yet accessible account of our distant past.

The predecessor to PPS, Proceedings of the Prehistoric Society of East Anglia (published between 1911 and 1934), is available on a separate page. Click here to access this.

Europa 2021: a message from the President of the Prehistoric Society, Clive Gamble

The Prehistoric Society will be honouring the lifetime achievements of Professor Colin Haselgrove at their annual Europa conference, 18–19 June 2021. Professor Haselgrove’s research has focused on later prehistory throughout his career, from the Iron Age to the Roman transition in Britain and north-west Europe. He has made an impact on diverse research areas, such as the significance of developer-funded archaeology to our understanding of later prehistory, the deposition and character of Iron Age material culture, and the archaeology of early coinage in Britain.

Since 1935, the Proceedings of the Prehistoric Society has published some of the most seminal papers about the Iron Age in Britain and Europe. To celebrate the Europa conference, we are publishing two new Online Collections: the first centred on the Iron Age period, and the second on the monuments of the Iron Age. We have also made four papers from these Collections free to download for the week of the conference, from 18–25 June. If you become a member of the Society, you can access the entire collection of PPS articles online and enjoy other benefits such as free or reduced conference attendance and more. We hope you join us for the Europa conference this week and enjoy the new online collections.
