Welcome to the Royal Archaeological Institute
The Royal Archaeological Institute (RAI) is a leading national archaeology society, with a history dating back to 1844. Its interests span all aspects of the archaeological, architectural and landscape history of the British Isles.
Through our annual publication of the Archaeological Journal and our programme of monthly lectures, we have a strong tradition of presenting archaeological research. We also give grants to enable research projects, host conferences and run specialist tours for our members to archaeological sites, historic buildings and landscapes.

Dr Rebecca Jones from Historic Environment Scotland will discuss Roman Camps in Britain, which have been the bridesmaid in studies of the Roman army – “known unknowns” until relatively recently. This presentation will give an overview of what camps are, their various functions, history of research, where they are found in Britain and our current knowledge base. Difficulties of establishing context, function and dating will be discussed. The lecture will begin at 5 p.m.
