Membership of the Association is open to anyone interested in art, architecture and archaeology, particularly of the Middle Ages. Applications for membership are welcome from amateur enthusiasts, young scholars and professionals alike  – the Association’s events allow all to share knowledge and expertise in a friendly and informal atmosphere.

  • Receipt of the Annual Journal.
  • Online access to the JBAA from 1845 to the current issue.

  • 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 archaeological or historical research.
