AANHS (Ayrshire Archaeological and Natural History Society)

Meet the Authors:  Who have been published by the AANHS

The AANHS was founded in 1947 to promote the study of Ayrshire history and natural history.  However, the Society’s origins go back as far as 1877.  The Society has over 170 members (in 2019), mainly resident in Ayrshire, but there are many members throughout Britain and the world.  The membership also includes library and university bodies. 

The Society is one of the few which publishes regularly; at least one Monograph is usually issued each year, free to members, and on sale to the general public.
