The Society was founded in 1847 and is one of the oldest in the country. It established the County Museum and still owns the main museum buildings and a large part of its collections. They cover the whole of the old historic county of Buckinghamshire from Milton Keynes in the north to Eton in the south. Their publications include the journal Records of Buckinghamshire, two annual newsletters and several books and papers on the history and archaeology of the county. They organise a varied winter lecture programme, available to the Natural History Section, the Archaeology Group and the Historic Buildings’ Group the society contains. Summer visits are also arranged to historic buildings, churches, archaeological sites, nature reserves and other places of historic interest.
