The Review
It has existed since 1924, the year when the Museum opened. Its publication was stopped in 1944 but was back in 1964 thanks to the SAMB under the influence of Jean Haritschelhar. More than 1500 articles have been published up to now.
In spite of all the changes the cultural world of the Bask Country has faced and despite the tremendous increase of the number and quality of publications, the review remains a major element as research and cultural spreading are concerned. It has been and still is considered as a way of reference in many fields as it is shown in the bibliographies of the research works about the area.
Read the History of of the Basque Museum review by Michel Duvert.
The editorial Committee receives, reads, chooses the articles then writes each issue looking for the best balance. The most prestigious collaborations enable it to publish a quality bulletin everyone can read. These last years, publishing texts from young searchers has been one of the Committee's editing priorities.
The review is published twice a year and sent to members. It is also on sale at the Museum shop and in some bookshops of the area.
