Founded in 1585 to further the study of antiquities, but banned as a possible political threat in 1604 by James I, the Society was revived in 1707 and formally re‐established ten years later; in 1751 it received a charter from George II. Regular publications began in 1747; Archaeologia started in 1770. The Society is based at Burlington House, London, where it has a fine library, open only to its Fellows.
