Castle Studies Group Journal Below is a list of the organisations, with web sites, that publish journals, or regular series of monographs, that have content which may be of interest with regard to the medieval fortifications in England and Wales.

National and International

Internet Archaeology from the University of York, supported by CBA, has a wider remit than the university itself. Sheffield University (uniquely?) published a graduate journal.
