The Benefits of Roman Finds Group Membership

The objectives of the RFG are to promote the study, research, publication, teaching and conservation of the material culture of Roman Britain.

Membership of the RFG will entitle individuals to:

  • Two copies of our newsletter, Lucerna, each year.
  • Access to our Roman finds Datasheets, which include: Engraved Gemstones by Dr Martin Henig, Jet, Shale and Other Allied Materials by Lindsay Allason-Jones, and Roman Seal Boxes by Colin Andrews.
  • Full access to the website, including the Members-only section which includes recent copies of Lucerna and Datasheets, as well as PDFs of finds catalogues and other out-of-print finds-related works.
  • Reduced fees to our twice-yearly meetings, held around the country each Spring (typically a two-day meeting) and Autumn.
  • Additional small bursaries to attend RFG meetings, including towards travel fees or accommodation, are also available to Members. Details on how to apply for bursaries are here.
  • Free access to members only seminars.
  • Access to small grants to help with small finds research. These grants are available to individual, fully paid-up, Members and will be awarded for applications seeking to support our objectives eg publication drawings and maps or travel to museums for object research. Special consideration is given to articles offered to Lucerna. £2,000 is available each year (reviewable). Details on how to apply for grants are here.
  • An annual prize to the value of £150 for the best contribution to the study of Roman material culture which meets the objectives of the RFG.
  • Group payment for individual RFG members to Instrumentum, the European bi-annual magazine. Join through RFG to receive four years’ of Instrumentum membership for three years’ payment. In addition the RFG will absorb the conversion fee in a bulk payment on your behalf.
