Historic cow houses complete with stalls.; from one of Dr RW Brunskill's many articles on vernacular architecture in AMS Transactions.

As well as campaigning on behalf of historic buildings, the AMS was founded to promote the study of architectural history and conservation. Our Transactions (TAMS) have been published in hard copy, and distributed to members each year since 1953. In 2006 we compiled a full list of all articles published which is reproduced here.

Libraries with a complete set of the Transactions include: The British Library, the Royal Institute of British Architects Library and the Society of Antiquaries (all in London) and the National Libraries of Scotland and Wales (although the latter is missing volumes 1953-5, 1974 & 1993). Each year the Transactions is also deposited at the usual copyright libraries.
