Since the early 1980s, the Georgian Group has in most years organised a symposium on a particular aspect of the architecture of the long eighteenth century. Papers given at these thematic symposia have been published in a number of different formats - A5, A4, as a special issue of the Georgian Group Journal, and occasionally as a hard-bound book. The papers form an important record and complement the essays published in the GGJ. As such, and because some early sets of symposia papers are now scarce, we have digitised them. The first tranche of papers, ten in all, run from 1982 to 1994 and are available here.
