The Royal Archaeological Institute of Great Britain and Ireland is a learned society, established in 1844, primarily devoted to the publication of the Archaeological Journal, a production of archaeological news that has been in print since that time. The institute's interests include all aspects of the archaeological, architectural and landscape history of the British Isles and former British Empire. The introduction to the journal article indicates that the original documents, in the possession of Mr Hailstone were unnoticed in Dugdale's Monasticon as well as in Dr Oliver's Monasticon Diocesis Devoniensis, and were offered in abstract form to journal readers in order to record their existence. This rare book was produced from a digital copy held by the University of California Library that can be downloaded from Google Books. Those on which copyright has expired are available for free educational and research use, both as individual books and as full collections to aid researchers.
