Since 1973 the Essex Society for Archaeology and History has published a Newsletter containing articles of archaeological and historical interest. 

The Newsletter began in 1960 but it is only since 1973 (with no.41) that articles of lasting interest have been included. In the early years the Newsletter was closely associated with staff working in the Essex County Council Archaeological Unit and focused on the many excavations taking place across the county. Since 2000 the emphasis has shifted towards local history content of a wide range of subjects. 

The website makes available for the first time the newsletters published since 1973 together with an index covering newsletters 41 to 180 (1973-2016).
