Welcome to The Bradford Antiquary

The Bradford Antiquary has been published for over 100 years. The current issue of The Bradford Antiquary (No.78, 2017) can be bought directly from us, we have an order form you can download. The contents of the current issue are given at the bottom of the page. Back copies of some issues are also available, a brief outline of their contents is given on the order page.

We intend to put as much as possible of the contents of past issues onto this website. This is a slow process but there are already over 50 papers and many book reviews and other articles available.

You can browse the online material in several ways. Either go to one of the three lists of articles where you will find papers, reviews of books and pamphlets, or other articles such as editorials and reports of events of interest to local historians

Alternatively, you could look at the list of authors where you will find links to information about them and their writings.

Finally, each individual issue of the journal will eventually be able to be accessed through the links on the right. At the moment there are very few papers from the journals in the first and second series. There are six complete journals from the third series and more articles from others in this series will appear soon.
