Archaeology Committee Grants: Public Engagement and Development

The Roman Society is delighted to invite applications for grants to facilitate activities in Roman archaeology along two streams:

1. Public Engagement: activities that promote all aspects of Roman Archaeology through public engagement.

Please use the form available here to make your application.

2. Development: activities that provide skills-based training in an aspect of Roman archaeology. Preference will be shown to skills which are currently in decline or especially needed in the discipline. The application should include:

i) a 250-word summary of the proposed activity, including an explanation of the way(s) in which the training will have a legacy in terms of the future of the discipline.

ii) the location of the activity

iii) the number of attendees that can be accommodated

iv) the delegate fee to be charged (if applicable)

v) details of costings.

Please note that this grant is not for people to attend courses organised by someone else.

Awards are typically £250 or less, but there is the potential for larger awards should a compelling case be made.

Public Engagement applications should be emailed to the Society's Outreach Officer Caroline Pudney (

Development applications should be emailed to the Development Officer Tatiana Ivleva (

The applications can be submitted three times a year with deadlines of 1 February, 1 May, and 1 October. The applicants should be informed of the outcome within a month of the deadline date.

The event/activity for which funding is sought is to take place a minimum of two and maximum of 12 months from the submission deadline.

Where an attendance fee is payable, it is expected that events receiving awards would offer a special rate to Roman Society members. When timings permit it is also requested that a short piece of text (less than 300 words) is supplied to promote the event in Epistula, the Society's digital newsletter.
