Aberdeen Registers Online: 1398-1511 (ARO) is a digital transcription of the first eight volumes of the Aberdeen Council Registers. These comprise the earliest and most complete run of books of civic government in Scotland, beginning in 1398 (volume one) and covering the period up to 1511 (volume eight).

The registers are held by the Aberdeen City and Aberdeenshire Archives (archival reference CA/1/1/1 - CA/1/1/8) and have been inscribed on the UNESCO UK Memory of the World Register, in recognition of their historical significance.

The Aberdeen Registers Online webpage and resource is an outcome of the project, Law in the Aberdeen Council Registers, 1398-1511: Concepts, Practices, Geographies (LACR). The project was funded by the Leverhulme Trust, Aberdeen City Council and the Research Institute of Irish and Scottish Studies at the University of Aberdeen.
