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.

A message from the President of the Prehistoric Society, Clive Gamble

The community of prehistorians has never been more important. Currently, we may not be able to meet as the Prehistoric Society, but our online presence has never been stronger Our Newsletter, PAST, and our flagship Proceedings are always there for members to enjoy and we have just launched our Schools blog, with its wonderful array of teaching resources. So, until we can all meet again either in the field, museum, or lecture theatre, I would like to wish you all the best and hope that you and your families stay healthy and safe.
