Authorship in the Proceedings of the Society of Antiquaries of Scotland from the First World War to Volume 150: a Perspective on Scottish History and Archaeology



The evolution of the pattern of authorship of articles in Proc Soc Antiq Scot between volumes 51 and 150 is examined. Various trends are charted across a series of approximately decadal time-segments, including increasing professionalization, the proportional rise of female authorship through time, variations in the geographical distribution of authors in and beyond Scotland, innovations in the scope of reporting and discourse, the balance between archaeological and other contributions, and the changing nature of archaeological employment and practice.
