Join Us

The Fellows of the Society of Antiquaries of Scotland are an essential part of the organisation and today we have over 2,500 Fellows.

Our Fellows are a group of people with one common passion – the past. The majority of our Fellows are based in Scotland and across the UK, along with a growing number from continental Europe and overseas.

Fellows might be established or emerging researchers, amateur enthusiasts or heritage experts. When you become a Fellow you join a diverse network of people who want to learn more about Scotland’s archaeology and history.

Fellowship supports the Society’s work as an independent voice for the heritage sector and enables the Society to promote research excellence and understanding of Scotland’s past. The Society has been part of Scotland’s intellectual landscape, research and discovery for 240 years.

A map of the world to illustrate where Fellows are based is found here.

New Fellows are elected to the Society in late April or in late November, with the closing dates for Fellowship application submissions being two months prior to election. The 28th of February is the closing date for applications to be considered in the late April election, and 30th of September is the closing date for applications to be considered in the late November election at the Society’s Annual Meeting.

The annual subscription rates for Fellows can be found here.
