  1. Hallo

    Is it possible please to get an index to all of your Journals – I am specifically interested in any articles that may have been published that relate to the Island’s geology, mineralogy or archaeology.

    I look forward to hearing from you

    1. So far as we know, there is only a very incomplete index. Since your inquiry, this has been scanned is now available on the Bulletin page. It covers volumes 3, 4 and 6 in the 1980s and 1990s.
