Resurrection - The Society Newsletter

`Resurrection' is the Society's bulletin, and is sent to all CCS members, with typically four issues each year with material on computer history and related topics in an A5 booklet format. It contains CCS news, articles, transcripts of seminars and lectures, and other material.

Resurrection has been published since May 1990 - and now forms a significant and authoritatave record on computer history - on the machines, on early applications, and on the people.

All previous issues are available online, with a composite contents list which enables going directly to individual articles - see the links above for more information.

Paper copies of the current issue and some previous issues are available from the CCS Secretary for £5.00 each.
