Distinctions for Dr Tania String and Dr Beth Williamson

9 July 2009

The Society of Antiquaries, one of the learned societies neighbouring the Royal Academy at Burlington House, have elected Dr String and Dr Williamson as Fellows at their 2 July 2009 Ballot.

The Society of Antiquaries, one of the learned societies neighbouring the Royal Academy at Burlington House, have elected Dr String and Dr Williamson as Fellows at their 2 July 2009 Ballot.  The Society, founded in 1707 and incorporated by Royal Charter, is the oldest foundation of its kind in the country after The Royal Society.  Fellows (distinguished by the letters FSA) are drawn from around the world principally in the fields of art and architectural history, archaeology, and history, and election to the Antiquaries recognises their distinction as scholars who have contributed to original research in their respective subject specialisms.  Dr String and Dr Williamson join two other members of the Department, Stephen Bann CBE, FBA (Emeritus Professor of History of Art) and Michael Liversidge (Emeritus Dean of Arts), who are also FSAs.
