What Our Customers Say...
Illustrated, Original Binding
In eleven volumes. 'Archaeologia' is a journal published by the Society of Antiquaries of London, which began publication in 1770. The journal consisted of papers and lectures that had been delivered at the society's meetings, delivered by a wide variety of influential members, such as William Cowper, John Braithwaite, John Lubbock, William Henry Smyth, and more. The journal currently has one-hundred and eleven volumes published, and whilst the publication hasn't been formally terminated, no volumes have been published since 2007. There was also a break during the Second World War, after which the publication became more irregular, though up until 1939 the journal was published on a fairly regular basis.
