The British Academy, established by Royal Charter in 1902, is the UK's national academy for the humanities and social sciences. As an academy of senior scholars, it gives recognition to academic excellence and achievement, and plays a leadership role in promoting and representing the humanities and social sciences nationally and internationally. As a learned society, the British Academy seeks to sustain the health and promote the development of the various academic disciplines that make up the humanities and social sciences. And as a grant-giving body, the British Academy supports and facilitates the research of individuals and groups of scholars.
Professor Michael G. Fulford, FBA is a Vice-President of the British Academy, and Chair of its Committee for British Academy-Sponsored Institutes and Societies (BASIS). He holds a Professorship at the Department of Archaeology, University of Reading.
