To promote the study of agricultural history, and the history of the rural economy and society, the BAHS publishes the Agricultural History Review and Rural History Today. The Society holds conferences twice a year: a day meeting in London in early December, and a residential conference at different locations in Britain in Spring. These are opportunities for professional and non-professional historians to meet, mix and exchange views in a friendly and sociable atmosphere.

The Society's Winter Conference, Rural Worlds in Motion, will be held on 6 December, at the University of London. Please fill in the application form and send it with a cheque to the address given.
