Society for the Promotion of Roman Studies
Work of the society
The society produces two annual publications, the Journal of Roman Studies, which contains articles and book reviews dealing with the Roman world in general, and Britannia, which has articles and reviews specifically on Roman Britain.
Grants of the society include: grants for summer schools, archaeology grants (through excavation grants and a biennial conference) and grants for schools for teaching about the Roman world.
There is a programme of public lectures in London, and others outside London arranged with local branches of the Classical Association.
