British Archaeological Association (BAA)
Address (general enquiries): Honorary Secretary, John McNeill, 18 Stanley Road, Oxford, OX4 1QZ
The British Archaeological Association was founded in 1843 to promote the study of archaeology, art and architecture and the preservation of our national antiquities. It encourages original research and publishes new work on art and antiquities of Roman to post-medieval date.
The association embraces a wide spectrum of antiquarian and art historical interests (with architectural history strongly represented) and its capacity to engage in debate across these disciplines is a major strength. New members are always welcome from all those pursuing an interest in archaeology, art & architectural history, history and related matters, whether in a professional capacity or not.
Events & Publications
Regular lectures held in London provide one channel of communication; others include an annual conference held over several days (whose proceedings are published for the benefit of members at large) and an annual journal.
The Association is affiliated to the British Brick Society. It holds various meetings during the year and has its own newsletter, 'Information'.
The Society of Antiquaries of London has granted the privilege of reading in its Library at Burlington House to any member of the Association engaged in specific archaeological or historical research.
