Society of Antiquaries of Scotland
About this Organisation
Founded in 1780 and incorporated by Royal Charter in 1783, the Society’s purpose is “to investigate both antiquities and natural and civil history in general, with the intention that the talents of mankind should be cultivated and that the study of natural and useful sciences should be promoted”.
Two hundred years on we continue to promote the understanding and conservation of Scotland’s historical and archaeological environment for the benefit of all.
Today we are an independent charity stimulating discussion and collaboration and supporting research.
