The Society of Antiquaries of London (SAL) is a learned society established with a royal charter in 1751. It is a registered charity based in Burlington House, London.

The first informal meeting of the Modern Society of Antiquaries was in 1707 and the early group sought a charter from Queen Anne for the study of British antiquities. The society was also concerned with the topics of heraldry, genealogy and historical documents.

The Society published two important journals, Archaelogia and Antiquaries Journal. The Antiquaries Journal was established in 1921, known as Proceedings of the Society of Antiquaries in London. The Society also now publishes a fortnightly newsletter online known as the Salon. The Antiquaries Journal is considered essential reading for archaeologists, architectural and art historians, publishing papers that discuss topics ranging from prehistory to the more recent past.

What Our Customers Say...

Bob, USA

 Thank you very much for the expedited delivery to the US. Just in time for the Centenary Armistice Day observance. I’ll also be watching Journey’s End on Sunday! 

Nicolas, Greece

I have in my hand the book which has arrived safely and in record time. Thank you for your nice letter and I will most certainly follow up in the future all the new additions to your library. The book is better than your description-clean with crisp pages and not damaged and with a fragrance of bygone days.My instinct for choosing Rooke Books has been correct and I have now a reliable establishment should I need any interesting books to purchase. My appreciation for the professional way you handled everything.
