Published since THRA's foundation, Papers and Proceedings appears three times a year and each issue contains at least three substantial papers. A wide variety of subjects — people, places and periods — all related to Tasmanian history are explored. Some of the papers have been presented at Association meetings. Others have been submitted independently. Papers and Proceedings also reviews books published about Tasmanian history. Many back volumes are still available for sale in our shop. Individual articles may be purchased on the INFORMIT website.
