The Roman Society was founded in 1910 to advance the understanding of ancient Rome and the Roman Empire.
With over 2,000 members the Society is international in its reach and encourages Roman studies by supporting research and publications, providing training opportunities for young researchers, promoting the teaching of Latin in schools, as well as sponsoring conferences, public lectures and site visits.
Further information, the 2015-16 events programme & booking forms are available on the Events pages.
The Joint Library is maintained jointly with the Society for the Promotion of Hellenic Studies and in association with the Institute of Classical Studies.
With over 130,000 volumes, including 675 current periodical titles, it has an international reputation as one of the world's foremost Classics lending libraries.
Membership of the Roman Society allows borrowing rights of up to four volumes.
