Summary:
PLLS began life in 1976 as Papers of the Liverpool Latin Seminar (ISSN 0261-0698), and its first five volumes (1976-1985) appeared under that name. In the late 1980s the activities of the seminar were transferred to the University of Leeds, and so volumes 6 through 10 of PLLS (1990-1998) were entitled Papers of the Leeds International Latin Seminar (ISSN 1362-3818).
