Digitialisation of early SAC volumes

Since 1847 the Society has published its Sussex Archaeological Collections annually. Carefully curated by the research team, it has become the first port of call for anyone interested in the history and archaeology of Sussex and the south east.

Editions since Volume 137 (1999) have been published online, hosted via the Archaeological Data Service. Listings of all the articles from 1847 onwards appear in the Society’s Library catalogue, however only those available online have a link through to the digital version.

We are aware of increasing demand for online access to our collections from members and researchers across the world. As the Society’s library is housed on the top floor of Barbican House in Lewes, the collections are inaccessible to those whose location or disability prevents them from reaching us.

We would therefore like to retrospectively digitise the earlier volumes, from volume 1 onwards – 136 in all – and make this rich learning resource truly accessible to all.

Investigations have located potential sources of funds up to 50%. Can you help us raise the rest? All contributions are welcome and we are grateful for any support.

Donations can be made either by sending a cheque marked SAC Digitalisation Project to Sussex Past, Bull House, or online by clicking Library Donations.
