Index to the ALG Newsletters


Thanks to the work of Jana Obrocníková there is now an index to the collected newsletters, going back to the first issue in 1986. It is in the form of a searchable spreadsheet which ALG members and non-members alike can access here. Just enter the name of an author, place, type of leather find or conservation treatment etc. in the search box and all corresponding entries will be listed by issue and page number.

Only members, however, have access to copies of all previous newsletters (via the Members’ Section of this website). We hope that once non-members realise the wealth of material they contain, it will persuade them of the value of joining!

Newsletter No. 58 for September 2023


The latest ALG Newsletter is now available to read in the Members’ Section and has been circulated to members. This 21-page issue contains articles on enigmatic Egyptian leather finds and medieval framed purses. Questions of all kinds relating to archaeological leather are answered by our members and there are book and conference reviews. In the ‘Getting to know you’ feature, the current ALG Chair, Arianne Panton and a long-standing member, Martin Moser, describe how they became involved in leather studies , how their interest has developed and where it has taken them.
