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.
- Full access to the website, including the Members-only section which includes access to 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.
- Free/reduced entrance to major finds-related exhibitions, where this can be negotiated.
- Discounts on finds-related books, or pre-publication offers, where these can be negotiated.
- 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. £1,000 is available each year (reviewable). Details on how to apply for grants are here.
- Group payment for individual RFG members to Instrumentum, the European bi-annual magazine. Join through RFG to receive four years’ worth of Instrumentum membership for three years payment. In addition the RFG will absorb the conversion fee in a bulk payment on your behalf. The next renewal date is 2017 and the cost for Instrumentum membership is currently 90 Euros for 4 years. Members will be notified by email, in Lucerna and on the website when the next renewal is due. Help us increase the Romano-British presence amongst a wider European small finds community eg by the provision of extra entries and links to objects in the Instrumentum/Artefacts website.
