Organised by President Martin Millett FSA
Join the Society of Antiquaries, both online and in-person, to explore the research potential of their archives, library and museum collections at Burlington House, and discover how their digitisation and cataloguing is progressing, and how this is enhancing their research potential.
The Society is home to over 40,000 objects, paintings, prints and drawings, and its world-renowned Library contains over 130,000 books and manuscripts. Its unique collections span many centuries of human history, from Palaeolithic stone tools to Tudor royal portraits, copies of the Magna Carta to illuminated manuscripts saved after the dissolution of the monasteries. The result of nearly 300 years of accumulation, the Society’s collection has a unique role in making rare and valuable material accessible to scholars and the visiting public.
The Society is delighted to have a fantastic set of speakers with us on the day to talk through how they’ve used our resources, as well as talks from our Library and Collections team, who will explain how to get the best out of us for your research.
Tickets for in-person attendance are £5 (which includes lunch) and free for our online guests.
For those coming In person, we also have a special deal for this event, which is 3 months free of our Affiliate membership! Affiliate membership provides access to our Library and the workspace, WiFi and you can borrow up to 4 books!
