The national association for industrial archaeology in Great Britain, members get an annual conference, an academic journal (see below) twice a year and a quarterly Newsletter. Monitors changes to industrial sites and has an international outlook.

TICCIH GB is a separate grouping with the more limited aim of bringing together members of TICCIH resident in the British Isles. Its Secretary is Miriam McDonald [Miriam.McDonald@rcahms.gov.uk]ConferencesThe AIA annual conference is held in a different part of the country each year in association with local affiliated societies. Highlight is the Rolt Memorial Lecture in honour of Tom Rolt. A spring meeting is usually held at Ironbridge.JournalIndustrial Archaeology Review is a peer-reviewed academic journal produced by the AIA, with scholarly standards of presentation, yet seeks to encourage submissions from both amateurs and professionals which will inform all those working in the field of current developments. Emphasis is placed on the practical aspects of a subject in which fieldwork plays an essential part, including recording, surveying, excavation, interpretation, conservation and protective legislation.
