On the 14th November 1780 a meeting of individuals at the Earl of Buchan’s home considered the possibility of a Scottish antiquarian society. After meeting again the Society of Antiquaries of Scotland was formally founded on the 18th December 1780 with the Earl of Bute elected as the first President, and was granted a Royal Charter in 1783.

Fast forward 240 years and the Society will be hosting its first ever fully online Anniversary Meeting on St Andrew’s Day Monday 30th November 2020. To ensure that as many Fellows as possible have the opportunity to participate please send us your email address if we don’t already have one, or you think we don’t have one or may have an old one.

The agenda and further documentation is now available on the Fellow’s Only area of the website, and has been posted to those Fellows for whom we do not have an email address. We will also be circulating a notice to register and vote by email.

The event will be held as a webinar on Zoom and will start at the normal time (4.30pm GMT), and include a short paper as usual.  We have several exciting developments to let you know about, and of course this will be the last one chaired initially by our President Dr David Caldwell as he steps down from six years of service to the Society.

Voting will be online in advance of the meeting itself, and ballots will close on 12 noon Friday 27th November 2020 to give enough time to allow the votes to be independently examined and verified and the results tallied.  Voting is now open.

Looking forward to seeing as many Fellows as possible on St Andrew’s Day!
