AARGnews is the bi-annual newsletter of the Aerial Archaeology Research Group. Containing editorials, news items, summary notes and longer descriptive or research articles, AARGnews remains a diverse, up-to-date and above all, open forum for discussion and exchange of new (and old) ideas.
Well illustrated with photographs, maps and plans, recent papers have covered aerial photography, air photo interpretation and mapping, historic aviators and their work, the methodology and progress of national remote sensing programmes, satellite imagery, book reviews and useful excerpts from the World Wide Web.

AARGnews is published twice per year and is circulated to all AARG members. Since issue 35 (September 2007) it has been prepared and circulated in pdf format and some years earlier, the Committee agreed that past issues of AARGnews could be converted to pdf files and placed on the web site for free access. We are grateful to Lidka Zuk from the University of Poznan in Poland for scanning the first 20 issues and converting them into PDF files.
