Historical Section Overview

We aim to provide support for historical research by BAA members. In our biannual newsletter and annual section meetings we provide a platform for members to present, display and discuss their research. We also offer direct mentoring. The director is happy to answer enquiries on historical matters, particularly relating to BAA members from previous generations.

If you would like to become a member or have any questions, please contact the Director.

The BAA Historical Section is closely linked to the Society for the History of Astronomy (SHA)
