INDEX OF ARCHEOLOGICAL PAPERS PUBLISHED FROM 1682-1890.
BY G. L. GOMME, F. S. A.
THE records of British Archæology are scattered through the transactions of so many Societies, that the need for a collected Index has long been felt. The formation of the Congress of Archæological Societies in 1888 led to the first important step being taken in 1891, namely the compilation of a yearly Index. This Index has been compiled and issued for each of the years 1891 to 1895 inclusive, and is admittedly of great value to the cause of Archæological research.
To make it complete, however, the Index from the beginning of the Royal Society in 1682 up to 1890 is needed.
This Index has been compiled up to 1885 and prepared for the press by MR. GOMME, who has offered the use of his MSS. to the Congress. It is now proposed to complete the work for the years 1886 to 1890, and to issue the entire Index, 1682 to 1890, to subscribers.
The Index consists of a transcript of the titles of papers contributed to every Archæological Society and other Societies publishing archæological material, in the United Kingdom.
These titles are arranged in proper bibliographical form, under authors' names in alphabetical order. To this is added an exhaustive Subject Index.
To those who are acquainted with the valuable material which is stored in the transactions of Societies, the value of this work will be at once apparent, and it is hoped that sufficient subscriptions will be forthcoming to issue the volume at an early date.
The price to subscribers will be Fifteen Shillings, which will afterwards be raised to One Guinea nett. The work will be issued bound in cloth, unless otherwise ordered.
Subscribers should send in their names at once to

A specimen copy of the In!ex for 1892 will be forwarded on application, accompanied by a penny stamp. Tie later issues of the Index include the transactions of many Societies not in this specimen ; the arrears from 1891 are in such cases indexed.
