We are proud to announce the publication of the first volume of the MHS Journal. Edited by our President, Dr Paul Dryburgh, it includes the best five essays submitted for the 2016 MHS Essay Prize. Whereas the quarterly Mortimer Matters contains news and 'popular' articles, the arrival of our academic journal adds a completely new dimension to the range of publications produced by the Society. All our members receive a free copy of the Journal but it can also be purchased at a cost of £5 plus postage - see below.
